 The SWA are Going Night Windsurfing!

       (And they're going to win win win!)

           Come to Hayling, look out for the flags and join in the party...

Where?  Hayling Island Seafront Look for the SWA flags and come and join us at base camp in the car park

Who? Open to ALL WINDSURFERS - novice to PWA pro! Or, as quoted by the Director of the SWA... "There are various teams competing...and there are even more teams drinking and having fun"

What kit? Any board can be competed on,  so we're thinking tandems, pre-millennium and pre 1985... although Tushingham Sails and Starboard will be amongst the many brands also displaying new 2009 gear in the exhibition tent. Team sailors such as Simon Bornhoft, Peter Hart and John Hibbard will be on hand to offer advice on kit selection in addition to running clinics through the day.

As Fat Face themselves say "The format of the event sees competitors battling it out through constant Masterblaster heats held throughout the day, which is open to all levels; all sponsored, with prizes! The heats for the Supper Cross Freestyle takes place throughout the day with only the best making it through to the finals, held under the cover of darkness, to the loud applause of the assembled spectators! With a prize pot of £2,000, much is at stake, as well as the accolade of being crowned the Fat Face Night Windsurf Champion."

What do you get? For the registration fee of £25 for both days (which includes entry in the preliminary day knock outs of the Supercross Freestyle event) you get:

- Free exclusive Fat Face Rash Vest
- Automatic entry to the Masterblasters
- Free clinics
- VIP pass into the HQ area and party marquee during the night, with Live Band
- A chance to see most of the new 2009 boards and sail ranges with the industry’s top manufacturers attending the event
- A chance to compete in the Pro Night Windsurf event on Saturday night
- A chance to win a place with the British team going to the Tandem World Championships in France
- Prizes galore with prizes randomly distributed to hundreds of sailors
- Your chance to win a share of the £2,000

For the rest of us more average sailors not competing, the SWA will always win the prize for "the most fun had" so whether it's free sailing on demo kit with everyone you know and love, or just loving everyone a little too much after just one too many drinks, this weekend is going to be epic!

So, get to Hayling, bring a tent, some drinks and some kit if you have it, and come and join in the fun!
