Sunday’s open day cancelled

August 22, 2015 No Comments

Wow – that was a scorcher! :-)

THANK YOU! to everyone that helped out at the taster day today and i hope everyone who took part enjoyed themselves :-)

Just to say we’re going to have to cancel the open day tomorrow (Sunday) as with up to 45mph offshore winds forecast – it would simply be unsafe.

Apologies to anyone who was hoping to come tomorrow….

British Kitesurfing Championships

August 8, 2015 No Comments

So a big week for kitesurfing in Hunstanton coming up with the Sailing Club hosting the finals of the British Kitesurfing Championships next weekend August 14th – 16th.

On friday evening the BKSA are holding their Annual General Meeting at the club starting at 6.30 pm. Straight after the AGM – top kitesurf coach Jo Wilson will be giving us a talk and this will be followed by some of the latest video releases. Free drinks and nibbles provided courtesy of the BKSA during the evening.

Saturday sees the first possible start for the BKC finals with categories including mens pros, womens pros, amateur men, amateur women, Juniors (under 16) and masters. If you’ve never competed before this a great opportunity to dip your toe into the competitive kitesurfing scene. Competing is undoubtedly one of the best motivators for improving your kitesurfing skills and also great fun socially.

Pre-registration is necessary which you can do here

There’s free parking on the prom for competitors as well as 24hr access to hot showers / changing rooms / clubhouse with bar, TV, WiFi, kitchen, weatherstation etc / free breakfast each morning / free meal saturday evening and of course saturday night party :-)

If you’re not interested in competing – no problem – why not get yourself down and check out / demo all the latest gear from the top brands and of course hang around and check out the party in the evening ;-)

Keep your fingers crossed for some good winds and hopefully see you down there!
