RE: starting up windsurfing interest ..again
While I've never been a racing competitor, I recognize that many can be attracted to the sport througth this avenue. However, because of my free spirted focus, I would also recommend a slightly different approach too. Not to discourage racing and those interested in that focus, I would also stress free, freestyle, speed and wave sailing too. If one was to also highlight these other interests, I think that maximum participation and value could be attained. Judged supersessions of a sort can reward folks with particular interests. A lot of folks can be broadly interested in windsurfing to obtimize participation without creating a whole lot of conflict.
