2014 Elements Spring Racing - a windsurfing success

Those that attended this season starter were not disappointed - once again it delivered conditions that we are assured are not typical, with winds varying from one extreme to the other to provide opportunities for all 'wind persuasions' to excel at some stage or other. It was great to see an increased number of young sailors. Big thanks to the sponsors and those that made the event possible. The Auckland and Wellington events have a high bar to aspire to now. An excellent write up of the event is available on the BOP Windsurfers site. More...
