"I just bought a used 2018 Slingshot Wizard 125 board and 2019 Slingshot foil. Too late to use this year but great prices. I was able to try out board in NC. Looking forward to lots of time foiling next summer! Pam"

Original Windsurfer Regatta 2014

We had a variety pack of Michigan weather for the Original Windsurfer regatta but that didn't stop us from having a very enjoyable time. Participants came from Ohio and Michigan for the August 16 Regatta, some new to windsurfing and others actively competing to win the races. I always enjoy a day with other windsurfers enjoying our beautiful water and am looking…

HI Pam,

i recognized your photo on web site.  glad to see your enjoying The Wind.

Planning to take a 9 day trip to windsurf Michigan's NE lower peninsula.  

The numerous launch sites in proximity to Traverse City is impressive.

I have a RV and pulling a windsurfing trailer so prefer, accessible parking, rigging and water access.

i have a few apps on phone to sort out Wind..

Interested in finding a campground that windsurfers in the area favor.

One of the local shops suggested Wilderness State Campground to the northeast.

Any thoughts?  Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hard to top local knowledge.

Regards,

Gregg Anshus

Hello Pam,

Thank you for the advice. Not sure where any such popular locations would be. I sail out of a relative's house who lives on lake St. Clair near Windsor. Don't see too many windsurfers out there. Only one this year and they were down the shore a ways.

Sandpoint beach, near Peche island, has been somewhat popular (for our area - one or two people) in previous years but I have not seen anyone there this season.
