NSW Windfoil & Wingfoil

Organised by Windsurfing NSW

The Windsurfing NSW crew has been busy over winter planning a VERY exciting season of sailing for 2023/24 weather you ride a fin, foil, wing, formula foil or iQ. If you are a regular racer, or are just curious about competing, and learning how to improve your skills faster, we encourage you to get in touch, and attend at least one of these events!

Racing is a great way to improve your skills, watch and learn from other riders, and meet up with like-minded people. Racing is being supported out of 4 clubs around Sydney and Lake Macquarie this season with a full calendar of events catering for social riders all the way up to Olympic qualification events!

This year we have a number of 1, 2, and 3 day events across greater Sydney and Lake Macquarie and even a 5 day iQ Olympic qualifying event on Botany Bay. We have the following events, some for Fin or Foil Slalom/GPS, some for Formula Foil (including iQ), and at almost all these events we welcome Wind Wings! There is also an exciting confirmation from Georges River Sailing Club (GRSC) for a new home base for all forms of foil racing in South Sydney, on Botany Bay ahead of the Nationals! We are also running two “Foil Expo’s” to highlight all forms of wind/wing foiling to curious people across Sydney.

Sailing Clubs supporting Slalom, Formula Foil and Wind Wing racing

Botany Bay based foiling will now be supported from GRSC, just south of Doll’s Point at the mouth of Georges River. GRSC will be offering races for novices to experienced sailors weekly, with some races out on Botany Bay or the river based on weather while there is also the potential to run short course races or slalom on other weekends. If you want to get involved in the regular club racing or attend the season opener on Sunday 10th of September 2pm fun race and social dinner, then please let me know! https://www.grsc.org.au/home/

Woollarha Sailing Club has been running some Sunday races for windwings over winter out from on Rose Bay this winter with potential for more this summer. Get in touch with the club to find out more.

Remember the 3rd party insurance expired on 31/August so you need to join a club to renew your cover. Most of the club races can offer a cheap 1 day alternative to let you see what all the excitement is about before you commit to a full year. So have a go!

The Windsurfing NSW Committee hope you have a great season on the water!
