I'm just wondering what you think about this weekend for windsurfing on the sunshine coast, as this site reckons around 20 knot consistent wind. I would love your opinion. Cheers >>

Round 3 of the WQ slalom series is this Sunday (2nd December). Please arrive at Wellington Point by 12pm so everyone has time to sign on by 1pm.

New entrants are welcome, the race fee will be $15.00. Sign on is at 12pm sharp closing at 1pm with race briefing at 1.15pm. Racing will start at 2pm.

Two New WQ Clubs
Two new clubs are now affiliated to Windsurfing Queensland. They are (in their own words):
WindWanderers endeavour to put the social fun into windsurfing by uniting like minded sailors to sail at different venues between Noosa and Currumbin on a monthly basis. Events will be non-competitive social gatherings held at locations suitable for great sailing and a great family and social atmosphere. It is hoped that joining sailors of all experiences together will raise the standard and fun factor for all involved.
The idea behind SEQ Wavesailing is to offer wave and freestyle sailors in the south east of Queensland a club that will meet their needs, and third party insurance for a little added peace of mind. We will be looking to promote social and competitive events across the Gold and Sunshine Coasts to give the experienced sailors a chance to shine and offer those who are making their first jumps or bottom turns the opportunity to learn from others.
Both clubs look like they are set to make the best of the season with a number of awesome events scheduled to help us all get out on the water in a fun and social atmosphere.
You now have four clubs to choose from, all with varying venues and covering most of the disciplines from Freestyle to long boarding. We welcome all of the new clubs and wish them all the best in their first year as independent entities. We hope you can all get behind the clubs to ensure they are here for us all to enjoy again next season.
The 2009 Neilpryde Australian Wavesailing Titles are to run between the 3rd and 8th of February at Marrawah, Tasmania.
