- 25 February 2011 | Windsurfing
All British windsurfers have been challenged to make history. The "Windsurfing 4 Cancer Research" wants to gather 1000 wind riders at midday, in the ocean and lakes of the United Kingdom, on May 1st 2011.
W4CR wants to raise awareness and collect funds for cancer research, education and support. The event is also open to kiteboarders, SUPs, kayaks and other sailing craft, whether you're beginner or expert.
All participants are encouraged to get as much "sponsorship" as they can from family, friends and colleagues. From Alton Water to Windermere, everybody is invited to hit the waters of their local windsurf spots.
The Sunrise Sunset 2011 Challenge will be "More than just a day at the Beach", the official motto.
There are 23 pre-defined venues, if you want to share a good time with other riders and friends:
Castle Semple Loch
Halifax, Warley Moor Reservoir
Minster, Isle of Sheppey
Pugneys Country Park
