Hopefully you can make it to the World Ice & Snow Sailing Championship Race on frozen Lake Winnebago either as a participant, spectator or both. Fond du Lac, WI (USA) has been chosen as the North American host for this annual event. The event is simply referred to as WISSA 2015. The World Ice & Snow Sailing Association (WISSA) , Winnebago Association of Kiteboarders (WAK) and Wind Power Windsurfing & Kiting Center are the primary organizations running the event. The Fond du Lac Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (FACVB) is providing an incredible amount of support in coordinating and promoting the event.

The event attracts competitors from all over the globe. The race typically alternates between Europe and North America locations annually. It was held in Madison, WI back in 1995 and in St. Ignace, MI (north end of Mackinac Bridge) in 2012. Wind Power was at both of those events and we are super stoked to have the WISSA 2015 event right off Roosevelt Park in Fond du Lac on Lake Winnebago. This location is right across the street from our Surf Shop and is the most popular windsurfing and kiteboarding launch on Lake Winnebago no matter what time of year.
