Speed Sailing Underway

6th November 2009
Speed Sailing Underway
Action from Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, and good conditions on Wednesday (4th October) saw some racing but – as is the way of these things – the wind died down before the windsurfers got a result. Thursday was more of the same with not enough wind to tempt anyone off the beach. However, we've got some great pics over the fold.



Main picture, above: Monty Spindler (USA) off Clonea Strand in Co Waterford racing in the Wind Surfing division of the European Speedsailing Championships. The Championships are being held in Dungarvan (Co Waterford) until Saturday 7th November.
