BSA WORTHING GALLERY & ROUND UP

BSA photo gallery pics by Nik Baker and Dave White. Words: Nik Baker

BSA Slalom 4 – Worthing Seafront 30/31 May 2015. There was an awesome turnout for last weekend’s BSA slalom racing hosted by Fanatic/ North on Worthing seafront. Both Saturday and Sunday saw excellent conditions for all fleets. In the men’s pro fleet, with his superb consistency, speed and control in the first race James Dinsmore took off to take the opening bullet and he went on to dominate all six rounds. The remaining podium positions was a battle between Kevin Greenslade and Sam Latham with some great racing from the likes of Tom wells and especially Leigh Kingaby on the windier and more radical day on Sunday, Leigh showed his south coast training really paid off with some top three finishes. The Amateurs was closely fought as usual with some outstanding performances especially considering many of the sailors only usually sail on lakes or in harbours, so to sail on the south coast was a test in itself. The stand out however was a returning windsurfer from Southend dragged down by the ‘Mighty Whitey’ in the name of Shaun Cook who really did outperform himself and came in top spot which was awesome to see. Second and third were Yann Vasseur and Simon Langley who both showed great potential. Normally the south coast is a bit daunting for the Master Blaster fleet but at low tide it was shallow for 500 yards, pretty flat and very manageable so the fleet had a blast. John Lane took the win, with Anne Walsh second and Josh Lane third. Josh also took the Under 17 prize too. Zara Davis competed in the Amateurs and took first women’s prize in her usual graceful style and speed, enjoying the bouncy coast sailing rather than trying to break world speed records for a change. On Saturday evening after a long hard day or racing the competitors sat down to a beer and the usual BBQ set up which is coming a bit of a thing at the K66/ BSA events followed by a Volley ball tournament on the sand courts just behind the Baker Academy. This really was like a scene out of Top Gun… ok maybe not but it was a great fun evening and had the competitors nicely revved set up of the windy Sundays racing. The prizes were supplied by Fanatic/ North which included North Power it’s and awesome Fanatic deck chairs. See you at the next event in in Hunstanton for the Quayside Demo and BSA on the 27-28th of June.

PRESS RELEASE

2013 BSA SLALOM ROUND 3 – WORTHING
Sat 15th – Sun 16th June

Supported by K66 UK, Fanatic, North, ION

Worthing looks to offer much, but what we will see with the sea state is calm as the shallow beach allows for great sea breezes and nice flat water to test your speed and really make you feel like you are a world tour sailor.

K66 supported by Fanatic, North and ION want to go one better at this event and have already booked the wind, so whether its fighting for the title that gets you excited, or just cruising around with the locals on the Master Blast course you have to come down.

MORE DETAILS AT THE UK WINDSURFING AND BRITISH SLALOM ASSOCIATION WEBSITES!

  • Head south on the A3023 on to Hayling island.
  • At Mill Rythe roundabout (approx 2 miles from bridge ) take right exit.
  • At Beachlands roundabout (approx 1 mile) take right exit After approx 1/2 mile, left just west of the bottom of Staunton Avenue.
