Wind foiling! - exciting times ahead for our junior windsurfers Featured

Written by
Windsurfing and Wind foiling at Burton Sailing Club Windsurfing and Wind foiling at Burton Sailing Club

You may have seen some of our junior windsurfers flying around the reservoir recently.

Under the guidance of new club member and windsurfing coach Max Bushell, some of our members have really taken to windfoiling and are rapidly becoming quite competent in a range of conditions, often reaching exhilerating and adrenaline inducing speeds over the water!

From complete beginner, through to T15 junior race team to British sailing team our windsurfers go from strength to strength, Windsurfing and Windfoiling has become a real growth area of the club in recent years, thanks to the support and dedication of our windsurf instructors and support team. We are hoping to introduce more windsurf tuition and coaching at all levels in the future.

Of course, its not all about racing around at breakneck speed! We have many windsurf members that prefer just a pleasant afternoon on the water in more relaxing conditions. Thats the beauty of the sport, it can be as energetic or relaxing as you wish it to be!
