High Octane competitive slalom for UKWA National racers


The UK Windsurfing Association have combined forces with the importers to give everyone the opportunity to compete in a series of simple off-the-beach Master-Blaster races irrespective of age, gender or sailor ability. The series will be held during UKWA national slalom competitions, with each event offering:



  • PRIZES FOR MANY DIFFERENT CATEGORIES: pre 85, pre millennium equipment and even a fancy dress prize!
  • OPEN TO ANYONE ON ANY KIT (excluding competitors in UKWA slalom)
  • SIMPLE “ROUND THE BUOY” FORMAT
  • SAIL NUMBERS & UKWA MEMBERSHIP NOT NECESSARY
  • SPECIAL REDUCED PRICE OF £xxx
  • CLINICS FROM THE PRO’S & DEMO KIT AVAILABLE
  • SATURDAY NIGHT ENTERTAINMENT WHERE POSSIBLE

Nearly 400 windsurfers of all abilities enjoyed a superb weekend at the Fat Face Windsurfing Festival last September thanks to spectacular “off the beach, round the buoy” Master Blaster racing. For ’07 the UKWA are building on this successful format: the tour kicks off with the Tushingham Slalom Cup on the 24/25 March at Beachlands, Hayling Island. The event will offering the normal series of UKWA National Slalom racing but also, for the first time, simple master blaster off-the-beach racing, with no need for previous racing experience. Sailors don’t require any specialised race equipment or even sail numbers to join in the fun!


If you can sail planing in a straight line there’s no excuse not to race but if you feel that one gybe really is one too many, then why not join The F2 Speed Gun Challenge instead – see how fast you really are! The super-keen can even join in both disciplines.


For the first event, Andy Biggs Windsurfing and Tushingham Sails have teamed up over the weekend to display the latest Tushingham/Starboard Demo kit which will be available to test. Sponsored riders will assist setting up your kit, with coaching clinics throughout the weekend. On the Saturday evening retire to the comfort of the Inn on the Beach where a meal and entertainment will be supplied to all competitors.


All in all it looks like a bumper weekend in store, with more to follow at all of the UKWA Slalom events in 2007 season, encouraging FUN and ACCESSIBLE racing back to our beaches.
