Tushingham on Top as Alan Jackson wins UKWA Southern Cup in Christchurch

The May Bank Holiday weekend saw a tremendous weekend of Formula racing over three days in Christchurch. After 11 rounds of racing, Tushingham’s latest signing Alan Jackson took the new X-15 race sail to the top podium position, narrowly beating Keith Atkinson to the title. Alan used the new X-15 10.8m in the lighter winds on Saturday and Sunday and the 8.6m in the strong conditions on Monday, all on the Starboard Formula 161.

Derbyshire teenager Richard Jones, back from his wave competition in Ireland, was on fire in the youth fleet showing his true versatility with a consistent string of results - first youth and a highly commendable fifth overall.

Tushingham’s Paul Simmons comments:

“Signing Alan was a great move for Starboard and Tushingham – not only do we have a proven race winner achieving superb results, but also cutting-edge feedback from the race course which Ken Black thrives on. The result from Christchurch shows just what the combination of a top designer and racer can achieve in a short space of time. Well done to Alan and Ken!"

The new X-15 10.8m is available now and priced extremely competitively at £499.00 For more info e-mail windsurfing@tushingham.com
