Entry will be open to all Windsurfer (LT & One Design) and R300 Class (includes Bic Techno 293).

This year sees the introduction to the "Cruiser Division" a shorter course for those that have never raced, are returning back from racing, have just started windsurfing or for those that want to ease back in after winter. The Notice of Race will follow shortly, for any questions please contact Jo Chau on 0428 248 168.

Could a WT committee member please post a link for WT membership cost and payment methods.
So I can make my membership current for the upcoming events this season.

Here's the link to membership Paul (below),

Social membership has been re-named to Affilliate Membership to reflect the WCAA members who are joining for the AWA 3rd Party Insurance Cover (single discipline).
Competitor Membership for multi event and consideration for awards.
Membership costs have been held the same as the past few years.

Hey Paul apologies I don't check Seabreeze often and I just tried to duplicate a post from the "Southern Windsurfer" facebook page but it didn't work. Below is a screen shot.

In a nutshell:

If you are not a member of a sailing club you will need to register for a SailPass which is $20 each day.

You will need WT membership for TPL which is $35 for an Affiliate.

You will need to join WCAA (no insurance option) $40 as you will be sailing a LT.

Lastly you will need to enter. Also if you can let me know re dinner would be great.

Thanks Jo,
The links posted are incomplete. I am one in the increasing number of people who want nothing to do with Facebook or its covert apps.
I appreciate the extra effort needed to duplicate info on this great purpose built on demand platform. Which has seemingly been abandoned for the most part in favour of intrusive apps and insidious social media.
Come back everyone. Make Seabreeze Great Again.

Tried Sandy Bay Sailing Club web site to make registration and payment. It will not accept it.
Can competitors fill out a hard copy and hand over the $20 on the day? I'll bring a can of industrial strength isopropyl disinfectant to make sure the bank notes and pens are sterile in order they pose no risk to anyone.

The revolutionise.com.au site will not accept payment even if done using a PC.
The sites name is ironic; There is nothing revolutionary about it. I've wasted all the time I am willing to.
Enjoy the regatta Sat & Sun. I'm scratched.

The entry is difficult. I filled out the form a number of times but couldn't get to the payment screen. I finally worked it out though. After you select the class, the windsurfer state titles, there is a line that says "windsurfer state titles attendee" and a box with no indication of what should go in it. When I finally wrote "yes" in the box it allowed me to go to the payment screen.
I would assume that Ja Si and Oui might also work.

If anyone is having trouble please call me today and I will do it for you over the phone. I did this with Paul this morning and all went through. The Club is currently changing websites as Rev Sport is very clunky. I have just posted on Facebook so let me see if I can copy it to here (sorry Seabreeze editorial skills are lacking, anyone feel free to help if it does not work).

Entries close today at 4pm for the States. If you are having trouble entering please call me (m 0428 248 168 so I can help you). You can check on "Who's Going" to confirm if your entry went through. If you are having issues with the SailPass we can do this on Sat morning. Remember to wear your ?? and tee shirts as we will have a weigh in at registration at 0830 on Sat. The Sailing Instructions will be available on the SBSC website from 1000 on Friday. If you are competing please check your name appears on both photos (just names is Windsurfer Class Association of Australia membership), if not please join Windsurfing Tasmania and/or WCAA before Saturday otherwise DSQ may be awarded.

Sorry for my grumpiness! My IT patience threshold is limited.
Entry facilitated by Jo Chau.
A big thanks to Jo Chau for her tireless dedication as a volunteer organiser of this coming weekend's round of The Tasmanian Windsurfer Championship.
Without such people events like this would not be possible.

It was a fantastic weekend of racing. A big thanks to the Sandy Bay sailing club for putting the event on and for El pres Mort for driving south to help with all the organization on the water.
There were solid results for the northerners with Thomo and Gill winning their divisions and some southerners doing pretty well too.

Nope...Flukey light winds with tide running just to keep it interesting for 6 out of 8 races. Two races in a nice steady 12-18. High skill levels were a must to be competitive. It's tricky to extract full performance from the LT in particular up wind. Downwind, pumpers sail away from non pumpers. IMO the new OD is a simple, affordable, versatile package whether it's being raced or just for some peaceful fun TOW.
The atmosphere at the weekend's event was nostalgic of the 80's Windsurfer heydays.
All in all a great re-introduction to OD.
Got anymore snaps anyone?
P.S. more youth would be great!

Yep. Was great fun event.
I worked out downwind pumping finally. Yep, rather than being overtaken by top sailors I could maintain position....just.
Lots of pics on bookface. I'm too lazy to post on two forums unfortunately.
