Wow .. a lot of racing action is scheduled in September. Be sure to check the MOWIND calendar. It’s good to contact organizers a few days out to check things are on schedule.
The notice of race flyer for the Sept 25-26 Fall Wind Power Championships windsurf regatta in Fond du Lac is now available in PDF format. Hope to see you there. This is the 1st race in the 2011 MOWIND point series of races. Results of the 2010 MOWIND points series will be presented during the Saturday evening dinner at the Sunset Club in Fond du Lac. On Friday Sept 24 the free Winnebago Supercrossing long distance race takes place so check the flyer out for details on that.
Also coming up Sept 11-12 is the Higgins Lake Regatta in Roscommon MI. That event is held at Higgins Lake South State park campground. General public and non-racers are welcome, show up and reserve a campspot by the beach for the day, rig and sail. Join the group for a fun dinner excursion on Sat evening. Race headquarters will be located towards the west end of the campground around lot 350. As usual the GLWT (Great Lakes Windsurfing Tour) people plan to be there with demo gear and deals on demo equipment. So if you are a non-windsurfer .. this is a great opportunity to find out more about windsurfing and make some new friends.
Sept 18 is the date for the 5th race in the Canadian Ontario Sailing Race Series. This one day race is held at the Toronto Windsurfing Club facilites. The following day on Sept 19 the 17km TWC Mammoth Marathon long distance race around the Toronto islands is scheduled.
