Official Test Centre UK: ready for the Olympics

"It has taken a lot longer than we had hoped, but at last we are pleased to announce that the Official Test Centre (OTC)UK will officially be open for business on Saturday 31st July. World Champion RS-X sailor and Weymouth local Nick Dempsey will be on hand to cut the ribbon, and open the doors to the centre for the first time."

"There will be free windsurfing taster sessions, discounted equipment rental for the day and a BBQ put on by The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy.

The OTC is based around the unique concept of stocking the latest boards and sails of all the major brands so that our clients can test and compare them for themselves. With all the feedback we have received to date from Tenerife.

We are confident that the system works and that it offers a vital extra resource in the windsurfing world.

The aim of the UK centre is to go one step further by providing a full, progressive centre with access to windsurfing for all, from the complete beginner to the pro windsurfer.

In essence we aim to provide a social hub, helping to showcase windsurfing... and what better venue to do this than at the 2012 Olympic sailing venue."

The OTC UK - opening 11.00am 31st July
