Registration has opened for this years speed week so if you fancy a week of of riding faster than windsurfers and rubbing it in there faces now's your chance :wink: (some times its more fun coming off the water with faster speeds and showing them your results and seeing there faces drop than it is doing the riding)

Its also the only competition for the BKSA speed tital which was won by James Longmuir last year on his first attempt at speed sailing on a underground production board who also set a very impressive overall fastest speed of the event 34.4 knots beating some of the fastest windsurfers on the planet.

£165 for the week isn't cheep but it is a fun week in a top location.

I think Chipmunk might have a board or 2 left if you want to be in with a serious chance of getting a good prize. Last year Gazextreme in his first speed competition won a holiday to clubvass in Greece on one of his boards

Hmmm, might see if I can get the week off for this one :D Anyone got a board they could lend for the week? Failing that its going to be plank building time....

I have decided to keep the pair of Mikes boards I already have as they are great in chop because they are heavy. I will use the new ones for glassy conditions. I do have a board for sale that doesn't really fit in with the rest, PM me if interested. Mike Iv'e had an e-mail from a fellow Blade rider who fancies making himself some boards for Weymouth and is after a template for a board, I reckon he may exchange some materials for one of your old templates. He is known as valdez on this forum, send him a PM.

I ve got a EpoxyCarbon 135cm(Styled on the Mako) complete board with 18 mm concave, would be perfect for the the Portland Chop.
Super fast and makes both of your legs feel they have done work.
Its a bit stiffer then the original Mako so i deal for speed runs.
