With just over a week until the BWA season kicks off, in Rhosneigr and then Brandon Bay, competitors, organisers, and of course Boards are ready and hopeful that these two fantastic locations will deliver yet again.
This year, Boards will be reporting LIVE from the event sites with up to the minute information and inside news and interviews.
After a tight battle at the top in 2011, it’s anyone’s guess who could take the top spots this year. We have drafted in a big name on the BWA scene to tell us more, the full feature will be online very soon.
ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!!!
At the first stop, Rhosneigr, Wales, the competition will run from Friday 11th May for the pro’s, with the amateurs joining them on Saturday and Sunday. Competitors will the head straight over to Brandon Bay, Ireland, for a week of competition running from Monday 14th through til Friday 18th May.
With great wind and waves in 2011, BWA Wales hosts FUNSPORT, are hoping for more of the same:
“We had an excellent tour last year with great conditions at all the events, and I’m sure this one is going to deliver again for 2012!” Bucky
Funsport have just extended their shop in good time to provide an even better base camp for BWA Wales 2012. They have hosted the event for many years now and are totally committed to supporting the tour…..as well as some of the best known British Riders like Ben Proffit (Simmer Stye) and Phil Horrocks. The prize fund has been confirmed for the pro’s and local clothing brand OSHEA will be looking after the amateurs alongside our great tour sponsors.
“It’s great to compete here where me and Phil have basically grown up wavesailing, and makes for an awesome start to the tour! Phil always battles hard on home turf so it should be a tough comp just like last year, fingers crossed” Ben
“For the amateur sailors the tour has never been more fun and better supported with prizes, we can’t encourage people enough to come and take part to enjoy the sailing and atmosphere!” Nigel Treacy
