Championships Success!

Thirty windsurfers (17 open raceboards and 13 Konas!) converged to Ottawa for the annual CMWA championships. We had gorgeous weather all weekend accompanied by wind on Saturday and Monday. Open class did five races and Kona One Design managed to finish four races on Saturday. The wind arrived a bit late on  Sunday so we just windsurf freely at the end of the day. Monday morning brought some wind so we held a long distance race, followed by lunch and awards and a safe return home for everyone. The results are posted here. We would like to thank everyone involved from the participants to the volunteers to the staff at the Britannia Yacht Club.

The pictures from the weekend are now up!

Video souvenir on YouTube now!

Postal Strike & Championship

If you are planning to attend the CMWA regatta in Ottawa from July 29 to August 1st and cannot mail in your cheque before the early bird deadline of June 30th because of the postal strike, please send Suzanne Roberge an e-mail at roberge811@sympatico.ca before June 30th to let her know that you intend to be at the regatta. That way you will get the early bird discount and you can send your cheque once the mail is moving again. This will also help us to know how many people will attend and plan your event! Thank you.
