News Headlines – Fri 9th

Our video for today brings great footage from Ireland thanks to Umi Pictures and features Phil Horrocks, plus local legends, Timo and Finn Mullen.

Our very own technique maestro Jem Hall has the last few places available on his infamous Reliable Rhodes Performance Boost coaching weeks.
Spring will see the return of Jem\’s unique web coaching movies right here on Boardseeker, for now take a recap of some of Jems Gems in our technique section.
Many places have been going off during Easter time, and in the UK, they managed to run not one, but two Xpression Sessions, one in Portland Harbour on Friday and one at West Kirby on Monday. Over 25 sailors took part in these Freestyle events with the following results: 1st Ric Cleworth (Boardwise, Fanatic North), 2nd Scott Perry (Neilpryde UK, Astbury Sailsports), 3rd  Stev-o (Goya)
The charity event Windsurfing 4 Cancer Research was a success last year, and this year they will try to raise some more funds to help a little bit more this noble cause. The more sailors register the better and ideally they should confirm the venue they want to sail at (30 around the coutry) as soon as possible so they can get their free sail stickers and be allocated a sail streamer for the day. For more information on this charity event, check out their website. 
And in the Canary Islands they also had some great conditions. Check out the action pictures from Alex Mussolini and Dani Bruch (it looks like Dani is sailing with Patrick Diethelm boards?)
It is really bad that GP has broken “da foot” and as we said, we wish him a speedy recovery, but thanks to it, we might be getting some good Maui updates on his blog about the sessions, photoshoots and new gear to come (like a 4 batten sail from Simmer?). So far, a good bunch of pictures from these days. 
The Youth Olympic Games Qualification Event in Civitavecchia, Italy, is under way and British Kieran Martin is leading the boys fleet. More on the Techno293 site. 
And to finish for today, we have “a little taste from Maui”.
