Wow, what a weekend! – the final round of the British Kitesurfing freestyle championships took place at the club over the weekend and it was a banger!!!
30-40mph winds and an apocalyptic rainsquall mid-afternoon made for some high drama on this 2016 decider.
Big respect to all the riders for charging in such extreme conditions (fortunately the juniors had it a little easier on the sunday morning!)

The club hosts the final round of the British Kitesurfing Championships this weekend and the forecast is looking awesome
Lots of demo kit if you want to come and try some new gear – but please stay out of the competition area!
Big party at the club saturday night including a fun ‘open-mic’ slot with £200 prize money

apologies – but unfortunately the forecast looks like being too windy for SUP, kayaking and sailing at the open day tomorrow.
The North kiteboarding demo day and kitesurfing deepwater packdown sessions will still go ahead in the afternoon as planned – as will the BBQ and party on the evening.
Sorry to say the free Introduction to Sailing course planned for this evening (Wed 29th) will not be possible due to high winds (23-35 knots forecast).
Next scheduled session is Wed 13th July at 6pm.
Stuart’s is going to try and arrange another Sunday session to catch up – this may be at short notice but if you’ve registered your interest you’ll receive an email.
