View Full Version : Sarasota demo at Island Style Classic?

22nd February 2008, 08:27 AM
Hi Roger (or anyone),

Got some folks interested in giving windsurfing a look-see.
Will there be free windsurf lessons at the classic at Ken Thompson park.

If so, what days and times should I tell folks to come over?

Hi Ovid 27,
Yes, there will be a free "A Taste of Windsurfing" at Ken Thompson Park this weekend.
I'm not sure about the hours yet, but I expect to be doing the lessons from around
10 AM until probably 4 PM.
I'll be doing them by myself, so they will run a little more slowly than you may have seen when I have Ellen to do the simulator and I can concentrate on the "on the water" only.
I suspect I will do a few people on the simulator each hour, and then work them out onto the water.
See you there!
Ken Thompson Park is in Sarasota, FL. Take Fruitville Rd. to the water front, make a left and follow the signs to City Island. Ken Thompson Park is at the end of the road on
City Island, adjacent to the Sarasota Sailing Squadron Yacht Club.
Hope this helps,
