History: Each year this event kicks off the new MOWIND Race Series (runs mid-September through the following early September). The event doubles as the MOWIND Race Series awards presentation, and is a great chance to get in those last runs of summer. Windpower Championships is also recognized by US Windsurfing as one of their National Racing Tour (NRT) events.
The Lake Winneabago Super Crossing is also held the Friday before Windpower Championships, sponsored by Jeff Knutsen (www.a-aexteriors.com). This is a distance and social event that takes advantage of Winnebago’s impressive size and wind-powered touring options. When conditions permit, the Supercrossing starts at the south end of the lake and finishes 28 miles later at the north end. Niles Book holds the claim to fame for sailing to the north end and back during a Crossing a number of years ago.
