- US Windsurfing is thrilled to announce that Sam Bittner (organizer of the AWT wave tour), the Columbia Gorge Windsurfing Association and a group of Hood River supporters have banded together to rescue the 2012 US Windsurfing National Championships in Hood River this summer. The Slalom, Formula and Freestyle Nationals will take place at the Event Site in Hood River from July 23-26. Registration is open now at
and more information about windsurfing in the Gorge can be found at
As excited as we are to make this announcement, we do know that some of you have already changed travel plans due to our cancellation notice that went out just a few days ago. We are so sorry for the confusion of the changing situation and the travel arrangement troubles that may have been caused. Everyone involved is working hard to make sure that the event will be fantastic and we hope to see you all there! Head AWT judge Matt Pritchard says "The US Nationals are the backbone of racing in the USA! We need to keep the flame alive and do everything we can to save the Nationals for 2012!"
And remember, the summer calendar is packed with other great events also. The Formula North American Championships will take place in San Francisco from July 17-22, San Carlos Cactus Cup Wave Contest is in San Carlos, Mexico from July 28-August 4, The Techno 293 Nationals/Kona New England Championships/RS:X East Coast Championships in Martha's Vineyard from July 31-August 2 and the Kona North American Championships in Waconia, MN from August 24-28.

- Here's a cool mention of CalCup on the latest post from DaNews Blog:
- Some important changes to the CalCup rules for 2012: If racing is canceled for any reason on the scheduled Saturday date, the racing will be re-run the very next day (Sunday) that same weekend. If the whole weekend (Saturday and Sunday) ends up as a DNR (Did Not Race), that event will NOT be re-scheduled at a later date. There are no make up dates. Please review this new rule (#14) and the rest of the CalCup racing rules here.

- The votes are in, and the overwhelming majority preferred the shared party with the St. Francis on the 7th. So, the 2011 CalCup end of season awards party will be held on Fri, Oct 7, 2011 at 6:00 PM WHERE: St. Francis Yacht Club On the Marina San Francisco CA 94123. Mike still needs some of your trophies from last season back!

- The 2011 CalCup, West Coast, and USW NRT Calendars are now online.
- Great news from Karen Marriot, the president of US Windsurfing!
First, big news…….The Berkeley Yacht Club board of directors just voted last night and decided to host the 2011 US Windsurfing Nationals! Jane Morson, who has done lots of work with running Formula races and the Cal Cup in the Bay Area, will be the main organizer and I am confident that she will do a fantastic job! The dates are July 11-16, which is before the Techno 293 worlds at St Francis – so we are hoping that some of the international kids (and our US kids) who come to that will come to Nationals as a warm-up regatta. So start spreading the word so folks can be making their plans to travel to the “warm side” of the bay for next summer’s nationals! Karen"
