Inverloch Windsurfing Clinic 2010Sunday, 28 Nov, 2010
An awesome weekend at the Inverloch Windsurfing Clinic at the Anderson Inlet with over 50 people on the water learning new skills. Light wind on Saturday for the beginners, and a nice 15-25knots on Sunday for the intermediates and Advanced.
The Inverloch windsurfing club which was formed last year now has over 70 members reaching from as far as Geelong and Sydney who regularly travel to Inverloch to take part in the sport they love. A real community amongst their members as they fight it out on the water for the fastest top speed along the sand bars, and then laugh about all the wipeouts over a barbeque and a beer at the end of the day!
Allison was invited down for the second year running to coach over the weekend. Taking time out of her training schedule for a new Olympic Campaign, Allison said "I'm so happy to give back to the sport in this way. I always love coming to Inverloch, it's a really run place to sail".
It was great to see so many females trying windsurfing for the first time. Everyone improved in leaps and bounds in just two days of intense coaching with Allison and a few local advanced club members who also gave of their time. "Many people practice bad habits early in windsurfing and unless they are corrected they struggle every time they go out on the water. Something simple could make windsurfing for them so much easier" said Allison.
SHQ the local windsurfing shop sponsored the event with beginners boards and equipment for Allison to use over the weekend. SHQ also supported the event last year when this event began. Doug Hocken, Mick Green and many others put in countless hours of work to bring this event together and deserve recognition. It's the guys in the background that keep our sport growing. The Sentinal Times also ran a back page story on the clinic which was great publicity for the Inverloch windsurfing club.
Prizes were awarded for the most improved each day and as you can see, despite a bit of rain, there was all smiles! Allison looks forward to coming again in the years to follow, hoping to have more people getting into the sport each year.
