A very last minute trip was organised by Andy King, Ben Proffitt, Phil Horrocks, his brother Dave, Greg Martin and Adrian Jones┬áto the Isle of Tiree based on the Met Office forecast.
They were after some starboard tack practice and they got it at Crossapol beach on 4m sails┬áin warm sunshine. Usually on Tiree you\’re freezing your knackers off but not in August. The guys also got some good sessions at Balephuil and a freestyle session on the Loch in front of Tiree Windsurf Youth Club who were judging from the shore!
During the Tiree event, (15-22 Oct) sailors will compete in the waves, freestyle and now SUPER X.┬á The Super X event will be supported by a fleet of Super X boards and sails for anyone who wants to give it a go so get that ferry & house booked and get up there!!
