LWA goes "Old Skool"
We are too kool for Old Skool - for the 2021 season you can dig out your old board, your baggy old sail and come and do some racing. We are introducing the Old Skool class for the 2021 season, you can even use your new Windsurfer LT. Max sail size 6m2 - race for fun, against friends or see how you stack up against the modern gear.

BEGINNER RACERS VERY WELCOME:
One of our functions as a region is to introduce newcomers to racing. We run a “Grand Prix finish” system so even if you manage to complete only one lap you get a position. Beginners to racing are especially welcome, please see our “Starting Racing” page and please feel free to email or phone us for advice. If requested, there will be a special “Beginners’ Briefing” after the main briefing at events.
BUOYANCY REMINDER:ALL sailors are advised to bring buoyancy to ALL events, for those under 18 it is compulsory at all times and for the rest the Race Officer has the power to require all sailors to wear buoyancy if he decides it is necessary.

OLD RACEBOARDS FOR YOUNG SAILORS:
We recently advertised an IMCO raceboard free to a young sailor and we had several replies but had to disappoint all but one. If you know of any ex-sailors needing good homes for their beloved raceboards, please put them in touch with us, you never know, they might earn some brownie points with management and not feel too guilty about parting with their treasure.
