It’s less than a week to go before Pura Vida Boardriders & Tenby Windsurf Club head to Tenby for the Caldy Island Relay for Cancer Research, August Bank Holiday weekend. They will enjoy their best line-up of activities yet, and the forecast already looks ideal to run the relay and make sure all abilities can get on the water!

Over the August Bank Holiday weekend of 27th/28th/29th, Puravida Boardriders and Tenby Windsurf Club will be hosting a charity relay, fun slalom, windsurf clinic and demo weekend in association with Fanatic Boards, North Sails, Ion, Simmer Style, Mistral and O’Shea who have kindly donated the prizes and will be showing off their latest kit, at Tenby South beach … including a BBQ and beers on the Saturday night at the clubhouse!

Entry is only £30 per person for the entire weekend and all the money raised will be going straight to cancer research so please come along and take part, and bring the family! Entry includes free clinic time, access to all the great demo kit and your event T-Shirt and saturday’s BBQ. Social guests are also very welcome. There will be a range of activities for all ages and abilities taking place over the weekend depending on the wind, including advice from Nik Baker, Farrel O’Shea, Kev Greenslade and Simon Pettifer.

For the 3rd year running there will be a relay competition out to Caldy Island and back in teams of 3, but this year in our celebrity raffle on Saturday at 11am you could win one of our top stars like Nik Baker or British Speed Champion Kev Greenslade as well as top Pura Vida Teamriders to boost your teams performance! Entry and registration will be on the Saturday morning at 9.30am and the relay will run on best wind. The maximum sail size is 9m on any board (excluding formula), teams may use up to 3 sets of kit or share. Name your teams now…..and don’t forget there is the coveted ‘Fancy Dress’ challenge that some say is the one to win!

Please note that you must have 3rd party insurance to take part.

Closest camping with beach access is at Kiln Park but there are various campsites, hotels, B&Bs etc. in and around Tenby, so book soon to avoid disappointment. Many will sleep overnight in vans near to the beach.

Be sure to join us for what has become a great and well established bank holiday event for all the family, please spread the word and thanks for your support!
