Spring 2011 was a busy one for junior windsurfers in the US! Margot Samson and Ian Stokes competed at the Miami Olympic Classes regatta in Miami in January. They both learned a lot of RS:X skills that will help to prepare them for the ISAF Youth Worlds Championships in Cyprus this summer.
In February, Rax Sayre, from Martha's Vinyard travelled to Mexico to compete in the Techno 293 North American Championships. While he was racing he showed incredible sportsmanship when he saw a fellow competitor who had been seperated from her rig and was in danger of drowning. You can read about it here, http://www.mvgazette.com/article.php?29104 or see the video here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJQXdEFtqlc .
And of course, kids from all over the country are making plans to travel to San Francisco for the Techno 293 World Championships in July. Kids from all over the world will be competing in San Francisco Bay, ripping around between the Golden Gate Bridge and the Island of Alcatraz to see who will take the world title for 2011.
