The annual Womens Windsports Weekend at Lake Clearwater is on 16-17 February, a wee bit earlier this year so hopefully it will be a bit warmer too. Please come along prepared to sail plus in the unlikely (!) event of no wind - bring bikes, SUPs, jokes, stories, food, booze etc.

There is nothing formal planned for the weekend except have loads of fun. If anyone is bringing newbies along don't forget the club has learner windsurf boards for use. Please let me know it these will be needed as we will need to arrange to transport them up to Clearwater.
