I hope everyone got some this weekend! I've posted a few new race and demo events that are coming up in the next month. If anyone wants to report on these, let me know.
I've also added a few links (bottom, right) to some non-commercial windsurfing sites.
Lastly, Scott Haas, from MOWIND (see their link), is looking for people to report from race events on his site. Contact Scott if you're interested.
