Walleye Wagatta and Dam Jam Notices of Race

Spring is here and it’s time to start thinking about Windsurfing! Lake Winnebago thawed this weekend and I’ve heard from several sailors across the Midwest that have already had their first sessions on the water.

MOWIND is committed to another great year of racing, and is proud to announce these two events coming up in May.

2013 Mille Lacs Kona Cup

Twelve racers competed on Kona boards on Lake Mille Lacs in Garrison, MN September 28-29. Mike Fox did a great job racing the fleet 5 races each day. It is always great sailing on Lake Mille Lacs, and it was even more interesting with the entire fleet on the equalized Kona gear.

2013 Windpower Championships Regatta Report

The 2013 Windpower Championships were a success again! Many thanks to Windpower Windsurfing and the entire support crew for a fantastic event. The wind showed up great for the event. We had a full Super Crossing from Fond du Lac to High Cliff in 15-20+ mph winds on Friday, and also had strong winds on Saturday for course racing. 3 course races followed by a distance race that took us around the southeast part of Lake Winnebago. Sunday we had 5 more course races in light/moderate wind.
