Laurences live-in windsurfing clinic kicks off this weekend - there's still time!

I am very happy to have my windsurfing clinic kicking off this Friday at 10.30. Pete and I have a lot planned so it will be an action packed course with a lot of windsurf training and fun. The opening night there is a BBQ at the Pt Chevalier Yacht Club (where students will be sleeping) which all parents are welcome to come along to where JP Tobin will be talking and answering questions anyone has. The food I will be providing will be prepared by Ironique Cafe Mt Eden.

Penghu has an awesome reputation for strong wind conditions and flat water so the race track should be fast and smooth.
