Club racing is a great opportunity for beginners to learn the basics of windsurf racing in a less intimidating* environment. Also experts can hone their skill and offer advice to those less experienced.

*Let me let you in a little secret, (don't tell anyone it just between you an me), the bigger events you see listed on the events page are not intimidating. You do not have to be an expert windsurfer to participate, and they are a lot of fun. There maybe a few guys in the A fleet who take things way too seriously, but just stay out of their way on the starting line and everyone gets along fine and has a good time. The Sport Fleet has a separate start anyway, just hang back let the type A personalties in the A fleet take off.
