Lagoon Watersports hosted a huge Windsurf Party on Saturday night in aid of W4CR! The legendary Lagoon windsurf parties have gone from strength to strength in the past couple of years with the ‘in-house band’ Lagoon 5 now known as Twig And The Giggleberries heading up the live music on the night! The venue was packed full of excited water sports enthusiasts and by the time the first band took to the stage at 10.00 It was Emily Rae former IMCO racer and hardcore wavesailor that was first to unleash on the dance floor!
The every popular Lagoon raffle followed with plenty of happy people walking away with goodie bags bursting at the seams with oodles of merchandise kindly provided by Fanatic/North, Ocean Sports/Boardridersguide and W4CR. It was Kirk Barkers band Arnie For President that was next on the agenda with a great set of full of classic rock tunes followed by DJ Safety to finish the night with some uplifting house tunes!
A massive thank you to Alistair Carlow who jumped straight from his Zap Cat and onto his drums to play in both bands! Paul Powerboat who looked after the sound engineering for the night! Our favourite yacht skipper Johnny Dale who busted out some classic acoustic numbers to get everyone in the groove! And Portland Rock Bar for providing such a unique venue and letting us do absolutely anything we wanted with it.
Mark Saul, Lagoon Center Manager, was able to meet David Tuttlebee from W4CR on Friday to learn more about his charity. Mark said “he is an inspirational and terribly positive chap”. Unfortunately he couldn’t make the party due to his illness. in his absence we worked really hard to promote awareness of his charity and hope the donations keep flooding in!
It was awesome to see so many people on Saturday night all sharing the windsurf love and would like to say a massive thankyou to everyone involved.
