Saylorville Dam Jam: where are the other contestants?

The Saylorville Dam Jam 2011 has been successfully sailed in Iowa. The windsurf contest had warm weather and fantastic winds, on both days. It was a bit stormy overnight but that didn't keep anyone from having a good time.

The event hosted the first full blown Kona Fleet for the MoWind race series and was also part of the US Windsurfing 2011 National Race Tour. Brad "Woody" Woodworth ultimately won the Kona competition, followed by a close pack of Larry Miller in second, Randy Howell in third, Steve Callaway in fourth and Pavel Matousek in fifth.

It was really a competitive racing contest at the Saylorville Dam Jam 2011.
