The fourth round of the Irish Slalom Series takes place this weekend at Downings, Donegal. The beautiful location will host more than 100 windsurfers of all abilities from novice racer to expert. Tushingham Sails & Starboard are main sponsors of this round, supporting the event with demo gear and a great selection of prizes.
The latest forecast is for fresh winds on Saturday and strong winds on Sunday – so something for everyone! The demo kit will include Kodes, Futuras and iSonics from Starboard plus a wide range of sails from Tushingham, including Lightnings and X-15s. John Kenny will also be bringing along his demo Starboard SUP fleet (guaranteeing strong winds!)
Tushingham’s Paul Simmons will be racing but when he’s off the water he’ll be on hand to offer advice on kit selection and assist with all the demo gear. Throw in a superb party on the Saturday night with live band, great food and RNLI disco and you’ve got quite an event! The relaxed and welcoming atmosphere makes the IWA events well worth the trip whether you’re looking for high-adrenaline maxed-out action or a complete novice to the race scene.
