RYA announce one design sail for junior windsurfers


After conducting extensive testing, the RYA is pleased to announce that
Tushingham will produce the 6.8 and 7.8 RYA one design sails for the BIC
Techno O.D. fleet used at all RYA Junior Windsurfing events.


With a narrow diameter boom that is ideal for smaller hands and a 60%
carbon mast the Tushingham TK68 rig is an ideal for children embarking on
competitive racing. The rig comes specifically constructed for a sail
that is designed to work effectively in a variety of winds and is
conducive to some serious pumping.


Helen Cartwright, RYA National Windsurfing Coach excitedly explained “In
collaboration with Tushingham, we are convinced that we have made a huge
step forward for Junior Windsurfing. The TK68 is a modern race winning
sail that will give the RYA Team GBR Junior windsurfers the best chance of
success.”


“After extensive testing no other sail offered the type of performance we
are looking for in both planning and pumping conditions. It will be
fantastic for the junior windsurfers to have a responsive and high
performance sail. I know that they are all waiting with great expectation
for their new sails.”


Tushingham look forward to the forthcoming racing season with
anticipation. Roger Tushingham, Managing Director of Tushingham commented;
“Everyone at Tushingham has enjoyed working on developing this Techno
Class rig. It is a proud day for us because we have been so active in
promoting and encouraging windsurfing to the youngster. Good luck to all
of them in racing next year”


The Tushingham TK68 will be available to purchase from TushinghamUK
distributors. For more information please visit
