The 2013 Round Hayling Island Race for Windsurfers was won by Rob Kent for the third successive year with a winning time of 1:35:30. However it was a clean sweep for Seavets in the Silver Fleet taking the first 3 places. Congratulations to Nigel Tailyour 56:00, Julian Barnes 59:00, and Dave Rabbetts 1:15:00. In the Bronze Fleet John Chubb took third place with a time of 1:00.32. Congratulations also go to Lewis Barnes, Julian's son, who came home in 5th place in the Gold Fleet. Only 18 of the 44 Windsurfing competitors managed to complete the Gold Fleet Island rounding course in the very cold 12 to 15 knots easterly wind.

UK is an initiative from the RYA - have a look at it here,
sign up and then join the Seavets group. (Please use your full name when you sign
up so that I recognise you as a Seavet.) It should be a great way to keep in touch and provides a discussion forum.
Suggestions and comments welcome - via the Project Windsurf-UK site, or by email. I've written some guidelines to help, as it's not altogether obvious (updated 14 May). Click here to download.
