Gemini Tandem Worlds

From 12-14 September the Gemini Tandem Worlds will be held in La Rochelle, France as part of the “Grand Pavois” boat and watersports exhibition, where the latest equipment for just about every form of watersports is on display.

There are already two teams confirmed at the competition but Tushingham, the UK’s Starboard importer, would like at least one more team to complete the British Tandem Team. With such a strong emphasis on fun, rather than hold a regatta to find the fastest team, they are asking potential racers to complete the following sentence in no more than 20 words:

“We would like to compete for the British Tandem Team at the Gemini Tandem Worlds because………….”

Last year’s Gemini World Champions, Paul Simmons and Marie Buchanan, will select the winning entry.


The winning response must be printable in a family magazine!
One entry per person (meaning a team of two can have two attempts)
At least one member of the winning team must be 18 years or older
Winners must hold adequate 3rd party windsurfing insurance and be free to travel on 11th Sept and return on the evening of Sunday 14th September.
Responses by e-mail only

Winning team will be announced on Monday 1st September on the Tushingham website.
