Calema Midwinters

The Midwinters Festival will continue its tradition of bringing together World Cup Pros, Olympic class competitors, beginner sailors and all other levels of competitor. The 24th Calema Midwinters Windsurfing Festival is scheduled to March 5th/8th 2009.

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. We will have an inside course for the youngest and most novice kids. The more experienced kids choose between Sport or A Fleet which are sailed with the adults on outside courses.

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 1/1/09)-- 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. As in past years - the Sport Formula Fleets allow for ANY production shortboard - but is still limited to One Board/3 Sails.

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.

Waves are constantly breaking all over the world, and if you're on a surf trip or family vacations it's always good to know you can rent a surfboard anywhere there's a gem to be ridden.
