Windsurfer

 

Windsurfer One Design is the original windsurfing class in Australia. There is a resurgence of the Windsurfer One Design class following a strong fleet of 85 at last year’s Windsurfer Nationals here at Balmoral Sailing Club.

Buying a Windsurfer One Design is one of the cheapest ways to get into windsurfing. Windsurfer One Design is suitable for male and female, all ages, all weights and all abilities and can be sailed in most conditions from 5-25+ knots depending.

The Windsurfer One Designis an extremely durable board and great for the whole family to learn on and sail. One can progress from beginner through to being an expert at racing on the same board. The adult rig is 6.4 square metres and there is an option of buying a smaller junior ( 2.9 m )  rig which is perfect for kids to learn on, and also a 4.5 m sail for intermediate sailors. It’s a fantastic family sport.

You can progress to enjoy weekly social club racing, advance onto the travelling windsurfing regattas and then onto more competitive racing at the state and National titles. Events include course racing, marathon, slalom and freestyle (tricks) so there is always plenty to learn, practice and enjoy! It’s a fabulous form of exercise to keep you fit and toned but so much fun you don’t notice the exercise! 

Lessons and hire can be taken at Balmoral Water Sports, and if you are an experienced racer we have a club board that can be booked for races in advance for free.


All windsurfer classes welcome including Windsurfer One Design, Bic and RSX.


At Balmoral we also have formula class , as well as slalom, wavesailing  freestyle  and foiling experts.


There are onsite lessons and hire at Balmoral Water Sports and there are a variety of Balmoral sailing Club memberships for both social members and racing members .

I am happy to assist you getting into this amazing sport !
