It has been long-awaited, but The Official Test Centre (OTC) is pleased to announce that their new centre will be opening in the spring of 2010. Based within the grounds of the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy, the venue for the 2012 Olympics, the centre will stock the very latest freeride, freestyle and slalom equipment from all the major brands, allowing clients to test and compare the kit for themselves.

Portland Harbour is a world-class windsurfing venue, with some of the best wind statistics along the south coast of England, the waterway is applicable for use in any tide state. With its affiliated school providing tuition from the grassroots up, the OTC is a centre with something for everyone, and will showcase the modern sport of windsurfing on the most prominent stage within the marine leisure industry today.

Subject to the final planning consent being agreed, the launch date of OTC UK will be announced in the next few weeks. In the meantime, for more information visit www.otc-windsurf.com, or email: info@otc-windsurf.com
