Jim Brookes-Dowsett has news for anyone considering entering the forthcoming Pura Vida Cornwall Wave Classic 2011, Gwithian, October 28th to 30th…
Exciting times ahead as we lead up to the Cornwall wave Classic kicking off in less than 10 days’ time! It couldn’t be more exciting in all fleets with everything to fight for on the podium, and it would only take the top runners to drop a few places and anyone with a good result is still in for a shot at the top three places. Not wanting to tempt fate but the long range forecast is looking windy…
Pre registration is now open online at www.cornwallwaveclassic.co.uk so please save yourself a little money and help us get you registered in advance so we can hit the water as early as possible!
Students, Ladies & Youths – £30 (£25 if pre-registered)
Amateurs & Masters – £45 (£40 if pre-registered)
Professionals – £55 (£50 if pre-registered)
PLEASE NOTE: Online registration will close on Wednesday 26th October 2011 at 8pm and all cheques must have been posted first class by 8am that morning.
Event HQ for the duration will be the Sandsifter (TR27 5ED) with Pro’s able to register there on the Thursday Night between 8pm and 10pm and for late entries on Friday morning at 9am closing at 9.30 for first heat 10am. The amateur sailors will be able to register on Friday night from 8pm till 10pm and late entries on Saturday between 9am closing at 10.00 for first heat at 10.30. Competition briefing will be at 9.00am each day at Sandsifter unless advertised otherwise.
Once again we will be running the coveted team format where the winning team can win a case of Ale!! Scoring is real straight forward, each team of 3 Amateur sailors enters the comp as individuals and your results are combined to give you an overall score. The lowest score wins – simples! There will be pro-riders on hand to give you advice, and don’t forget to think of a good team name, we encourage all UK shops/suppliers to enter a team, and if you don’t have one we can put you in one on the day to make it more fun!
A huge thanks must go out already this year to our Headline Sponsors at Franklin & Marshall, an outdoors clothing brand full of style that are putting a lot back into sports at the moment all across the globe. Check out their threads at www.franklinandmarshall.com/eng
Team Rider Chris Murray said – “Last year was epic, and I’m sure we’ll get wind again as Cornwall always seems to deliver” he got signed up last year by Franklin & Marshall – “It’s great to see them getting more involved with windsurfing and will certainly become a well known brand and hopefully involved in even more UK events from here”
