The day started with blue skies, puffy white clouds scudding across the sky, and the wind around 20 knots in exactly the right direction. It was even reasonably warmish. Some we're already rigging by 10am and over the next half hour more rolled up, until we had enough for a GPS race. In spite of the considerable amount of new gear on display, the weather held. The gods were with us. Craig and I...

Discover Windsurfing Day – 10 Jan 2016

RMK-40D_001664r
Windsurfing is a sometimes a tricky sport that relies on so many elements.... Obviously, you need wind, you need water and you need equipment.  But most importantly though, you need passion, drive, encouragement and support as you tackle the elements and master the techniques.  Its a challenge that becomes a lifelong pursuit for many of us, and sometimes it's great to share our obsession with o...

IWC Training Day – 12 Dec 2015

IMG_6006
Well the last 2 days have reinforced exactly why Inverloch is such a great windsurfing location! Yesterday Huey absolutely unleashed with a solid 30kt WSW wind.  A number of people got on the water, some got smashed and reports that came in mentioned that there may be a few sails up for repair as a result (and almost a brand new board after it flipped down the beach a bit).  But... what we were...

Wow!  That one word sums up the whole day, organised windsurf racing is back in Vic with a bang!
