This was a huge success with 50 windsurfers blasting dowwind from Sandbanks sailing around 20-30 miles in sunshine and moderate winds!
All organised in a few days, free T shirts for all entrants, transport back up wind, BBQ, beers, wind and sun! An epic day on the water!
Full report to follow, but for now, please see this link of our local online TV coverage (sorry about the presenter)

11 people did not finish, mostly due to lack of wind for the first few miles and/ or kit failure. They all managed their own rescues fine at various points along Bournemouth's beaches.
