Any kiters want to learn to windsurf ? Or any friends wanting to learn ?

First in get the places. Women and men for this one. Sat 4pm. Need to book with me first. Will just need towel and swimsuit and a positive attitude. :)

Southern Lakes Windriders news December 2015

Hope you had a good Xmas and wishing you all the best for a Happy New Year and lots of fun adventures in 2016. Hope you’ve all been getting lots of sailing in. The water at last is really warming up.. so get on out there and have some fun. Couple of winges to start I’m afraid but bear with us… that’s one of the reasons we need a club, to protect kiting and windsurfing spots in the area. Better news later in the newsletter.

One Mile Sailing.


The weather forecast is for westerlies, some possible brief rain on Sat but otherwise looking good. So bring all your toys and come stay over for a party on the Sat night too. Remember the hotel are doing cheap rate rooms so say you're here for the event if booking. Nothing structured, just turn up and play and see us in the pub after. !

Hope to see lots of you up there.

Sue 0276408596.
