Weekend windsurfing at kitesurfing recap

This was one action-packed windsurfing weekend. It started on Friday night with a formula race at St. Francis Yacht club and a Windsurfing magazine helicopter photo shoot. Here are Steve Bodner and Seth Besse heading back to the beach after the racing.

Then on Saturday the San Francisco Boardsailing Association and Windsurfing Magazine had organized a whole day of activities: swap meet, safety demos, Coast Guard motor lifeboat and helicopter demo, the Ronstan Bay Challenge distance windsurfing and kitesurfing race, and another helicopter photo shoot. Due to the seasonably warm weather, it took a while for the wind to assume its normal direction and velocity.

Here’s junior sailor Marion Lepert as she cranks back upwind from Treasure Island.

And here’s John Gomes in the kitesurfing division.
