Highland Spring HIHO 2009


What’s the most fun you can have windsurfing?  For 25-years racers have been heading to the annual Highland Spring HIHO event in the beautiful British Virgin Islands.  The events unique format combines a week of inter-island racing with great parties and a yacht flotilla.  It’s as fun for non-windsurfers as it is for the competitors, so typically whole families arrive for the week of fun. 


Highland Spring HIHO is well-known for its great long distance windsurfing.  The event combines between 7 and 9 racers including the thigh-burning Anegada race and several long downwinders through the Sir Francis Drake Channel. 


Forty racers in the Techno 2 division are expected in the 2009 event.  Confirmed competitors include the Royal Navy Windsurfing team plus racers from Canada, California, Denmark, Antigua, Martinique and the Virgin Islands.


One of the events best features is the fleet of BIC Techno 2 boards available to rent, plus new Neil Pryde V8 and Hellcat sails.  All you need to bring is your harness! 


Home for the week is a fleet of captained catamarans supplied by The Moorings, the leader in charter vacations.  The event visits almost all the British Virgin Islands in it’s 6-day itinerary.


The 2009 event is underway on Sunday, June 28th and finishes a week later on July 6.
