ROUND 1: Hosted by FUNSPORT
Wales (Rhosneigr), 17-19 May 2013. Friday: Pros only. Sat and Sun: all Fleets
ROUND 2: Hosted by SPILANNES BAR & JAMIE KNOX WATERSPORTS
Ireland (Brandon Bay), 20-24 May 2013
The 2013 Wales and Ireland ‘Back-to back’.
The Wales and Ireland event is a truly unique experience as competitors face 2-3 days of gruelling competition and partying on the testing Irish sea of Rhosneigr followed by a ferry trip and overnight drive to the Atlantic swell of Brandon Bay and heady party nights in the world famous, Spillanes Bar.
This trip is not for the faint hearted and those who survive always have a great story to tell. The venues have a history of delivering classic conditions which will test the very best in British Wavesailing. The BWA crew and judges also ensure that everyone is catered for seeking out more forgiving conditions for other fleets.
Quote from Ian Ross (BWA judge) “I have travelled all over the world and can honestly say that the Wales and Ireland back to back event is one of the most challenging and fun events in windsurfing today. The constant wind, waves and flow of hospitality is never-ending !”
