Event Description

Here's a great opportunity to demo new boards from Goya and RRD, Gaastra and Goya sails, and accessories from Chinook, Dakine and other vendors.  Free introductory lessons will be available for those who have never tried windsurfing before.

Higgins Lake is a great spot to sail.  There's a huge area with waist-deep water for beginners; the drop-off provides nice ramps for more experienced sailors, and it's a *big* lake, so you can cruise for miles if you want...

Thanks to everyone who helped make this event so successful - 23 first-time windsurfers were introduced to the sport!  Dave and I were so busy with lessons that we didn't get any pictures.  If anyone has any, please post them.  Next demo is on July 19 at Young State Park on Lake Charlevoix near Boyne City.  You can either register at the park before the event, or contact us directly to register.  Hope to see you there!

We will be meeting at Old Point Comfort Marina at 11AM before deciding where to go for the demo.  The location will depend on wind conditions and how many people show up.  If the wind is from the S or SW we will go to the end of E. Higgins Lake Dr.  IF the wind is from the W, N or NW we will be at the S. State Park at the East end of the day use area.
