Technique clinic from an Ex Olympic and World Champion plus Slalom Racing
Date: MAY 7th WEDNESDAY
Venue: Seasports Southwest, Teignmouth, Devon
Start time: 3pm – leading to racing and barbeque/prize giving later.
Live in Devon? Keen on honing your technique at going fast and tuning your kit?
Seasports Southwest, based in Teignmouth, South Devon recently opened their new RYA centre. As part of their National Windsurfing Week initiative they are promoting an afternoon and evening of intermediate and advanced coaching on ‘making your kit go fast’, and finishing the day off with some simple ‘in and out’ slalom racing. There will be prizes – but more importantly it should be an afternoon session that will certainly help any windsurfer improve sailing technique.
Ex Olympic sailor, 3 times National Slalom champion and World Course racing champion, DAVE HACKFORD will be running the clinics on the beach at Teignmouth all afternoon – Starting at 3pm.
Dave Hackford says “This will not be any ordinary clinic. Apart from the beach tuition we will have a vast selection of the very latest boards from Starboard – including Isonics. For those that want to give these a go, we will be on the beach to set them up with GPS systems. If we can’t get you to exceed 30knots, as long as the wind blows, we will be disappointed. Paul Simmons our ‘Driven by Wind’ team rider will have just returned from the Defi Wind Slalom event in France – and he will be bringing along all his racing armour for anybody to try. Even if the conditions are light we will have boards like the Serenity or Gemini for everyone to try – so come along wind or not. We will be there”
Starboard and Tushingham will be on site with their extensive demo trailor, that now includes Stand Up Paddle Boards
If you are keen to join in please give Seasports a call on 01626 772555, or email Tushingham at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the weather is good Seasports will be running a barbeque – so some idea of numbers will help.
