Another windsurfing season is beginning. Steph and I have been lucky enough to do our first days of sailing in the warm waters and winds of Bonaire.

Very quickly CMWA activities commence in late May with the Spring Clinic and Get-Together at the Burgess Cottages in Port Bolster on beautiful Lake Simcoe. As usual, it will give those of us who haven’t been on the water yet a chance to and wash the cobwebs off our equipment, tune up for the summer and share in some fun with good friends.

As you’ve seen in the Fall issue of Masters Matters, there are several activities in June to participate in. The highlight of the summer will be the CMWA Championships in St Anicet, Quebec from August 1-4. This is going to be an exciting time because we will be sharing the venue with a Quebec windsurfing event and bringing a large group of windsurfers together. Please plan to come to St Anicet.

See you on the water!!
