Kona One Design

A few of our masters travelled to Miami Beach, Florida in November 2010 to compete in the Kona One Design World Championship. Here is an extract of an article by Andrée Gauthier that will be published in the Fall 2010 newsletter.

“This was a race where everyone is on the same board with the same sail design. It is considered one design racing and is well established in Sweden. The competitors ranged in ability from expert racers to entry-level first time competitors. Kona signifies is Fun, Family and Fair racing. I am very interested in starting a fleet here in Ontario, Québec and hopefully Canada. Brad Woodworth of Northern Ontario and Dominique Vallée of Québec have agreed to help. If you need to know more about Kona One Design go to www.kona-windsurfing.com. If you are interested in the Kona One Design please contact me at andree.gauthier@rogers.com. I would like to arrange a group purchase of the boards used at the Worlds in order to get a fleet price and more people on the board to start a fleet.”

Huge success in Dryden!

The CMWA event in Dryden was a huge success! A total of 54 longboard racers made the journey for the 3-day Can-Am Championships travelling up from the nearby States including Iowa and Indiana. Over 200 crowded the bleachers at the park beach, with announcers describing the sport, the course and naming the leading competitors. Some 3,000 spectators circulated through the fairgrounds on the weekend, many of them witnessing a windsurfing event for the first time. Local restaurants and the Kinsman Club provided fantastic meals. We were invited to a beach party with live music and fireworks all in celebration of Dryden’s 100th Birthday. Thank you Dryden and organizer extraordinaire Brad ‘Woody’ Woodworth. Results now available here.

Join us for our next events, the Fall Wrap-up on September 10-12 and the Women’s Fall Clinic on September 11th. Registration form available here.
