This is the 24th Anniversary of this fall windsurfing event. It is on the US Windsurfing National Race Tour and a MoWind (Mid-West Organizers of Windsurfing) Event.
Don’t let all the hype fool you though, it’s a great event for all. Even First Time Racers! Wind Power caters to the beginner and novice racer. We try our best to make them comfortable, educate them and make them feel part of the Windsurfing Racing Family. Course and Slalom and Long Distance Racing will be offered, wind permitting.
New this year is the addition of the O’Pen Bic Kid’s Sailboat Class. Click on the blue link and see a detailed description of the boat and it’s uses and the 1st Annaul Event. Wind Power held the 1st annual O’pen Bic un-Regatta Aug 22nd. With 22 racers it was a great success even though it was chilly and very windy in the morning. By noon the sun was out and the wind subsided some to offer perfect conditions for all the kids. The kids and parents unamiosly voted to make next years a 2 day event. Wind Power will have boats available for kids to race in the Championships.
Saturday afternoon the Winnebago Association of Kiters (WAK) will host a brat & hamburger sale. Saturday night a meal and drink are provided at the Sunset Supper Club located next to the race site. At the meal the 2009 year end MoWind Awards will be presented. A bonfire at Wind Power will follow. Don’t forget to bring your Tent! Free camping in Wind Power’s backyard.
Sunday starts with a 9:30 skippers meeting followed with racing. Sunday afternoon will be awards, prizes and sub sandwiches. Bring your friends and family and watch or be a part of the 2009 Wind Power Championships.
