From Learning to Racing for young and old!
Windsurfer 2013 NSW State Champions
Last weekend the Club hosted the Windsurfer 2013 NSW State Championship for original and one design boards.
Despite not getting a race in on Saturday due to lack of breeze, Sunday saw 4 races completed which was sufficient to constitute a series.
Congratulations go to Hugh Richardson and Carina Flodin, (MH16's members and junior parents), who won their respective divisions in the Original Board class.
A great weekend was had by all and we look forward to hosting the Windsurfer Association in the future.

Saturday Senior Skiff Racing
16 Foot Skiffs
Racing each saturday from September to Easter, the 16's are a challenging three-man boat with two crew allowed out on trapeze at any one time. The 16' weighs only 72kg and has over 50m2 of sail area including asymetric spinnaker. With a choice of 2 masts and sail sets, reading the weather conditions and rig choice before a race is as critical as picking the breeze and good crew work on the course. Latest developments in the 16's are square topped rigs and carbon masts.
13 Foot Skiffs
This is the feeder class for the 16', they can be sailed by kids from around 15 to men up to the age of 23 and women up to 26 or raced with a child steering and their parent crewing. Racing each saturday from September to Easter, the 13's are a two-man boat with one crew allowed out on trapeze at any one time. A one-design boat weighing only 68kg with approximately 25m2 of sail area, including asymetric spinnaker, the challenge is focused on sailing and crew-work skills.
