ECWF: just enjoy Heckscher State Park

The 3rd annual East Coast Windsurfing Festival is scheduled for June 12th and 13th 2010. Raffle prizes are arriving every day, so sign up and get your free raffle ticket to get in n the action. We have some really nice hand carved, wooden trophies this year too.

The ECWF is all about having fun. For this reason there will be no wind minimum for any of the events. As long as there is enough wind to move a windsurfer forward we’re competing.

It’s much more fun getting out there and doing something than sitting around waiting for wind. Since there is a potential for running races in light wind, bring everything. We could get 5 mph or we could get 35 mph. Whatever the wind does, we’ll be ready for it.
