- Seavets in Action
- Committee


Seavets was formed in 1984 to promote windsurfing as an activity, convinced that an active life in middle age is most likely to lead to a healthier and so happier old age. Seavets has members from all over mainland Britain.

  • Promotes responsible and sociable windsurfing for the "not so young". Membership is open to those over 35 years old.
  • Organises racing and recreational events for members and encourages other organisers of windsurfing events to include categories and to award prizes for the "not so young".
  • Supports the registered charity Research Into Ageing.
  • Encourages members to become qualified through Royal Yachting Association approved courses.

From the beginning in 1983 the club has been closely linked with the medical research charity Research Into Ageing Fund, which is now the research division of Age UK. Between £2,000 and 3,000 has been raised by Seavets each year for the last few years, and just short of 80,000 has been raised since 1986.


Seavets is affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association.


The Research into Ageing Fund will be wound up by Age UK in early 2016, and no new medical research initiated. The committee is recommending that we should choose the British Society for Research on Ageing (BSRA) as our new supported charity, and ballot papers have been circulated to all members. Please return your ballot form to the Secretary by 9th November.

Burghfield, 3rd October. The final event of the season and the culmination of our 205 racing season, but this time not a breath of wind, so abandoned at midday. Trophy winners for the series were Mike Playle, Supervet, Tony Chandler, Megavet, and Hugh Norris, Octovet. The Chairman's Cup was presented to Roger Marsh, who completed a magnificent 35 races out of the 38 total. See results from link below.

Jono - Windsurfing around Britain - Mission Accomplished
