3 students from Falmouth Marine School have taken over the role of organising the annual Southwest Lakes Trust Windsurfing Rally as part of their University course. People from all over the country will be coming back to the Southwest to attend the 3-day event at the windiest lake in Britain – Stithians Lake!
The 3 students will be responsible for making sure everyone will receive top quality tuition for all levels; from sailing across the wind, harness and foot strap techniques, carve gybing and even vulcaning for the high flyers!
Also Naish and Tushingham will be on hand with the latest equipment for you to try and to give any advice needed.
Then if you’re not too tired from all the excitement during the day, there will be a BBQ for all participants on Saturday night where you can share social drinks and boast about your stunts on the water! There will also be a projector showing the day’s highlights.
A lot of hard work has been put in by the students to ensure a smooth running event, i.e. printing t-shirts for all windsurfers, getting prizes and sponsors and building a website to help advertise the event. You can view this at: swwr09.blogspot.com
This action-packed bank holiday weekend will be held at Stithians Lake, near Redruth, in Cornwall on the 2nd 3rd + 4th May 2009. The event last year was a massive success and this year is shaping up to be even bigger and better!
