Laurence Carey - Day 1 IFCA youth worlds in Alicati Turkey, rough start to day gets better

Laurence was disqualified from the first heat of the first round as 8 out of 9 went over the start line early. Racing in heat 9 with 20 other contestants he placed 2nd! A good day of racing. Started off on 8.6 and ended up on 7.0 in the final. Wasn't exactly the start I was looking for with a disqualification however got to the final in the end.
Round 2 Laurence was 3rd in the semi and 4th in the final.

Windsurfer Laurence Carey reports on the Carbon Art Challenge – Maui Race Series, the IFCA 2013 Worlds in Turkey and his plans for the future.

Laurence Carey (NZL 252) brings us this report from the second event of the Maui Slalom Series, the Carbon Art Challenge.
Over the past three years I have been coming to Maui to compete in the ‘Maui Race Series’ so I can train and race against some of the best sailors in the world. The ‘Carbon Art Challenge’ (15th June) was a great event with over 30 sailors competing. The conditions were very challenging with breaking waves on the start line and gusts between 25-30knots in the afternoon.

Windsurfing Slalom Racing returns to Eastbourne.

The Wellington Windsurfing Association (WWA) staged its final summer event in Eastbourne recently when riders revelled and raced in winds ranging from 28 to 38 knots. Slalom racing is the ‘Formula 1’ of windsurfing, with equipment and courses set to achieve maximum speeds, usually in a down wind zig-zag course and speeds up to 70 km per hour.

Windsurfing Event safety check-out / check-in board

At the recent Eastbourne Windsurfing Fun Slalom event we trialled a check-out / check-in board system for managing safety. I first encountered this at the National Slalom event in Dunedin and it worked well, so I decided to try it here. It worked well so here's the details on how to make and use your own (total cost $6)

National Windsurfing Slalom Series another success story

The National Slalom competition in Dunedin last week was an unqualified success, with around 50 competitors, close racing and good media coverage including TV ensuring high visibility. Well done to the organisers and all the competitors for making it so great! Coverage on TV3 was unprecedented for windsurfing over recent years, and the local press gave good coverage:
