After only his first season of sailing, IWC is proud to report that our youngest Southerly Buster – Joel Worner, is now officially a KA Sails Ambassador!!
Joel had the opportunity to try a new KA Kaos 4.7 (courtesy Mick Green), and Joel wrote an email to Peter Weitenberg of KA Sails letting them know how much he enjoyed using the sail. This was featured on KA’s Facebook page with a small article and photo.
This was followed up with a recent session at our sunny home waters of Anderson Inlet. On a KA Kaos 4.7 / JP 160 X-cite and with some last minute tips from Mick Green, Joel rocketed to a 2sec PB of 18.55kn’s, sending him to 3rd overall in Australia (GPS Team Challenge / Age Group). The IWC Club Media Officer then spoke with KA Sails to discuss the possibility of supporting our youngest speedster, and KA kindly agreed to endorse Joel as part of their KA-Team.
With thanks to the many club and ‘borrowed’ instructors; Mick, Dan, Simon, Red & Kato and all the other helpful IWC members, young Joel has a bright future in windsurfing.
