Anyone making the most of the conditions in
Firstly let me set the scene………Just over two years ago Army Major and Tushingham/Starboard sailor Allan Cross underwent a quadruple heart bypass. Less than 6 months later he was dubbed “Miracle Man” after defying his doctors by not just competing in, but winning the Forces Open Windsurfing Championships.
From that day on Allan has continued to live life to the max on and off the water as the organiser of the Fat Face National Windsurfing Festival. He recently dropped to one knee, not to have a heart attack, but to ask his girlfriend Linda to marry him. Surprisingly she agreed; which left me with one problem……….the stag do!
There was only one way this could go; it was time for a Superhero windsurfing…..and it was going to take all weekend!
Saturday provided perfect blasting conditions as the superheroes did battle from dawn until dusk. 35 knots plus dressed in a costume with fake muscles, a cape and mask is interesting to say the least!
Sunday morning saw most of the superheroes nursing hangovers that would kill a mere mortal after a serious night out in
It was an epic weekend and a fitting way to send Allan on his road to married life. He and Linda will be tying the knot on 5th Jan 08, so all the best to Mr & Mrs Miracle!
Watch out for Superheroes at a beach near you!
