Windsurfing Fleadh: nice moments in Ireland

It's that fun time of year again for the Windsurfing Fleadh. Fingal Sailing School with Wind & Wave are hosting this year's festival on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd May at Malahide.

The Plan for the weekend so far is as follows:

It will kick off on Sat a.m with some sessions and dedicated clinics for all levels: these will be hugely popular as there have been loads of requests from people looking to learnand perfect gybing / start procedures & also to get some rules for racing. Then in the afternoon we can put this into practise with some full on racing!

Throughout the whole weekend we’ll have the speed wall in use with the King and Queen of the lake prize coming back!

Then Sunday will we’ll have some more clinics / coaching sessions in the am followed with some more racing in the afternoon: with prizes on offer!

Entertainment wise the plan is:

Sat evening our local Gibney’s have reserved their wine bar for us to kick the night off with & they’ll provide some tasty food platters!

Sunday night is ‘’ Thee ‘’ night in the GAA club in Malahide. We’ve reserved the back room & organised a meal & drinks for up to 60 people. There’ll be a late bar with live band and an extension till 2.30am.

Monday will see a more relaxed day prob because of the previous late night but sessions will be booked throughout the day, finishing off early enough to allow people to travel home.

On hand throughout the weekend will be full use of our kayaks, Sups & sailing boats.

We’ll have a BBQ running throughout the weekend based on our decking – so fingers crossed some sun will shine!
