The Weymouth and Portland area will be the venue for the 2012 Olympic windsurfing event and this is a great opportunity to promote windsurfing, give the windsurfers a voice and to try to bring more people into the sport.

These are some of the reasons behind the creation of this new windsurfing association, the Weymouth Windsurfing Association. People like Nick Dempsey and Andy Chandler are part of the WWA committee, together with Claire Cumming, Helen Bramah, Sally Massey, Andy Gaunt and Callum Edge.

And is there a better way to start any new project, than having a good BBQ! Next Friday 8th of May at the Ferry Bridge Beach (or at the Ferry Bridge Pub if our lovely UK weather is not as good as usual) there will be a inaugural BBQ where everyone, members and non members of all ages, are welcome!

If you are interested or want to know more about the Weymouth Windsurfing Association, check their website at www.weymouthwindsurfingassociation.org, or ask at Windtek in Portland Road, Weymouth.
