Racing with BABA in 2016
_____________________________________

BABA East Coast Championships
September 17 & 18, 2016
Mayo Beach Park, Mayo, MD
Notice of Race

We're regrouping and trying to get our race program back on track. We've had a couple of lean years with low turn-out, and then BOOM, we had a really windy day for the 2015 East Coast Championship Regatta and there were more than 35 windsurfers on the water at Mayo on September 25, 2015 - some say it was the most windsurfers they've seen on the Chesapeake in decades!

Show the race organizers you care about racing, and show up for the ECC no matter what the forecast says! It's about the stoke, the community, and being on the water in any conditions. See you in September, if not before.

I've heard there are some old-school racers trying to get weeknight windsurfing races going again in Annapolis. Stay tuned for more information. Keep scrolling down for info about regional race events.

************************************

Racing is one of the best ways to improve your windsurfing and sailbording skills. Race courses combine upwind, downwind and across the wind sailing around bouys. Tacks and jibes are performed to complete the course.

BABA shares the love with our Novices and Juniors - the most important classes at every racing event. If you've never raced, but are interested, come on out and give it a try. The Novice class is for first time racers, experienced sailors to newbies - the race course is a new challenge for everyone. Juniors are 21 and under - including experienced racers and newbies.

Kona One - if you're interested in starting a Kona One fleet in the Mid-Atlantic please contact Daphne for more information.

Continuing for 2016 is a Hybrid class - bring out those Techno 293 one design boards. Check with East of Maui or Ultimate Watersports for rental availability. This board is a great novice platform too and it has been selected as the Junior one-design board.

SUP Sailors are welcome too. The Race Director will set up a special course if we have 3 or more SUPs with sails for a regatta.

Be sure you're registered on More_Downhaul to receive last minute race day information.
