Lake George GPS Event 2013

Event Description / Notice of Race

The Lake George GPS Event is a speedsailing event organised by Windsurfing SA that starts January 1, 2013 and ends March 31, 2013. 

Lake George provided outstanding conditions for speed sailing in early 2012, and there is much anticipation about the speeds that can be achieved there this coming summer.  The open time frame of the event will allow you to chase the optimum conditions to achieve the best speeds.

A current Windsurfing SA membership (or similar interstate membership) is required to compete.
