Race Results from Lake Travis Invitational

On November 8 and 9, the club hosted its first formal race, the Lake Travis Invitational at Windy Point.

Our pres Brian S and vice pres Tim M hatched the idea of a local race while they themselves were out on the race circuit. As Tim states, "The Lake Travis Invitational came about on the long trips to and from race sites."

On Saturday, we almost got through one race (most of the B-Fleet completed; some of A-Fleet got towed back). We finished the afternoon up with a 4-team (7-8 members) Stand-up Paddle Board relay race.

Sunday provided with us with great winds that allowed for 7 races.

In addition to the great prizes, a raffle of extraordinary gear, t-shirts, and other windsurfing goods went out to every participant! The best of the best was a complete Maui Sails rig, boom and mast. If that weren't enough, a BBQ buffet meal was enjoyed at the park. Lucky folks the next day enjoyed those leftovers.

Big thanks to our sponsors: Maui Sails (thanks to Tim), Chinook, Clif Bar (thanks to Jon P), and the Austin Windsurf Club. Even bigger thanks to everyone who threw in a helping hand that weekend to make the event outstanding: Darran, Brian S, Erica S, Guy, Vanessa, Hayden, Nguyen, and Kate (sorry if I missed including your name).
