Girls Power:

The ladies took over the water at Hayling Island last saturday 9th of August. Jo Wright had organized a ladies event, to get together and go sailing.

Like always in England, the weather was pretty unpredictable, and that Saturday, it dawned with a nice breeze promising a good day of windsurfing for the ladies. Starboard and Tushingham provided demo kit for the girls to try.  The iSonic board and Tushingham Lightning sails were planned to be the more used gear, but as the day passed, the wind continued picking up and by the end of the afternoon the girls were on 3,7 and wave kit.

Top racer Xavier Ferlet was on hand offering expert advice as well as top Scottish “chick” Anna Bird and experienced racer Marie Buchanan. In the afternoon none other than Peter Hart made a guest appearance, taking his brand new Starboard Kode for a spin.

All the girls were super happy and some of them even went for their first forwards!! The Inn on the Beach, provided a tasty buffet and looked after the ladies very well, so they want to thank them very specially.

In the end the day was a success and there were rumours about organizing a Women’s windsurfing festival next year!
