Let\'s kick off another grey week in the UK with some altogether brighter footage – the release of the weekend was this \'best of 2011\' compilation from third-ranked PWA wavesailor Nayra Alonso, including footage from Maui, Cape Town, Morocco and of course back home in Vargas, Gran Canaria! More from Nayra at nayraalonso.blogspot.com

Heading Down Under, afraid the news isn\'t so bright for Bryony Shaw at the Melbourne World Cup Carnival as the organisers report that "Bryony Shaw of Great Britain needed to beat Australian Jessica Crisp because her lead was reduced to two points after a successful protest by Crisp had seen an OCS for Shaw in the fifth qualifying race reinstated, after initially being reversed." And in the end, Crisp won the medal race to take the title from Bryony on countback. Ouch! After a tight battle in the men\'s fleet, New Zealand\'s JP Tobin beat Dorien van Rijsselberge by a single point to claim the prize. More at sailmelbourne.com.au

Off to the Emerald Isle, where according to Riks Windsurfing on facebook.com Rik\'s brother Rob Jones won last weekend\'s final round of Irish wavesailing competition to retain the IWA Wave title: "I just received a text from him saying he won at the Kerry event that was run at the infamous Hell\'s Gate break..." No official confirmation yet from windsurfing.ie, but there is already a fierce pic gallery from Thomas Lotocki on facebook.com

Staying in Ireland, check out David Minton\'s full report from an ‘endless summer’ of the Irish Slalom Series 2011 – as won by Hannes Louet-Feisser – at boards.co.uk

Into the world of speedsailing now where following a session last Friday 11th on the Namibian speedstrip at Luderitz, flying Swede Anders Bringdal now tops the all-time GPS tables on gps-speedsurfing.com with 48.03-knot average. Unfortunately there\'s no further word from the Luderitz Speed Challenge, but we\'re hoping for more soon at luderitz-speed.com

But back to the racecourse, and the Formula Windsurfing class have announced 10 new ISAF board registrations for 2012 / 13 at formulawindsurfing.org – and details of two of them, the JP Formula 100 Power and Speed, have also been released on jp-australia.com. Talking of flying product launches, JP have also unveiled their Slalom VIII at jp-australia.com, while Hot Sails Maui introduce their all-new GP2 freerace sail on blog.hotsailsmaui.com

And finally, IR-69 Timo Mullen seems to be a flavour of the month right now, what with the current cover of Windsurf magazine and of course our feature on the boardseeker.com homepage. So with impeccable timing Black Project Fins have announced his signing to their international wave team alongside none other than Mark Angulo. More at blackprojectfins.com
