Calema Midwinters

The Midwinters Festival will continue its tradition of bringing together World Cup Pros, Olympic Class Competitors, Beginner sailors and all other levels in between. We will have classes for all skill levels and type of equipment – A Fleet / Sport Fleet / Workshop Fleet (learn to Race) // and many Youth, Junior and Kids classes to choose from along with Masters and Seniors.

Whether you like racing a long, hybrid or short board, we have a class for you. The 2010 event will include the Kona North Americans and the Bic Techno 293 North Americans which will be a qualifier for the first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in Summer of 2010.

Racing will be held in the Banana River with launching from Kelly Park in Merritt Island, FL.

The Midwinters will be governed by the ISAF Rules (2009-2012) and the rules of Formula Windsurfing (as of 1/1/10)– with regard to the Pro & A Formula Fleets – the specified sail size limitations and the listing of approved production equipment. New Weight Divisions will be used if more than 20 competitors in a division.

Kona One Design: Must use a Kona Style board and a 7.4 Zenith sail for all competitors under 85Kg. Mast and booms are open but boom must be aluminum and mast no more than 75% carbon. Racers over 85Kg may race with a 9.0 Zenith sail and will be scored separately if attendance is big enough.

In surfing, full rotations are relatively rare. However, when performed correctly, they often leave an exclamation mark on the wave. Learn how to pull off the frontside reverse 360.
