Jo Wright’s Bad Education

Tushingham rider Jo Wright reports from another SWA event, held last weekend in Liverpool…

Waterside fitness

131 students braved floods, standstill traffic and bitterly cold winds to travel to the dark depths of the North in search of the 3rd SWA event of the season in Liverpool! They were certainly not disappointed as Liverpool turned out to deliver on all levels!

The Liverpool windsurfing committee did an epic job of organizing the event, providing the students with 2 nights of partying, free drinks, food for the whole weekend, demo kit, competitions and accommodation for only £15!

After a slightly delayed start on Saturday morning, the rest of the day at Crosby reservoir was met with gentle winds and sunny weather which offered perfect conditions for all the beginners to get out on the water. Under the watchful eye of Simon Garrod-Bell, Louis Morris and Taffy Osbourne some of the beginners even managed to be signed off for their RYA Start Windsurfing. Demo kit was very kindly provided by Boardwise for the weekend allowing all levels of windsurfer to get out on the water.

After a much needed dinner, everyone donned their fancy dress attire constructed under the theme of ‘bad education’ and had another fun filled night out in Liverpool. Sunday morning came round a little to early for some but we were greeted by a steady 30 knots at the reservoir. So after a rigging frenzy all the advanced and braze intermediates headed out on the water.
