Cornwall Wave Classic, hosted by RB Sails

2015 was another great year for the BWA. Despite growing the duration of the Rhosneigr event, we we skunked, but there was just enough wind for all to have fun on the Demo RRD and Starboard / Tushingham kit that was kindly provided. Sadly we lost Ireland, but Cornwall delivered a near perfect weekend of sun, wind and waves.
The standout event last year was Tiree. Willy MacLean and the Wild Diamond team raised the quality of the event back to its heyday. Their hard work was rewarded by winning two tourism awards, Best Sports Event for the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards 2015 and for the Scottish Thistle Awards 2015. The Tiree Wave Classic is now nominated for the finals of the National Award against The Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup. The event is a fine example of what can be achieved with minimal sponsorship and maximum team effort. Plans are afoot for an even greater event for 2016 when the Tiree Wave Classic celebrates its 30th year. DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!
The Mailing Room (TMR) became the principal tour sponsors of the BWA Championship in 2015 committing investment for the future of the sport with a well attended Youth Programme managed by Sam Ross. BWA look forward to continuing the TMR partnership into 2016.

This year we are returning to 4 events, but with a bit of a twist, one event in the spring and 3 in the Autumn. We are working very hard to secure an event back in Ireland, perhaps in conjunction with the Irish Windsurfing Association. Details TBC.
We are thrilled to announce that the 2016 Cornwall Wave Classic will be hosted by RB Sails and the Rhosneigr event once again being generously hosted by Funsport thus providing a sustainable platform of growth.

We are also including the facility to extend an additional ‘Pro Forecast Day’ of either 27 or 31 Oct for Pros only. This day will be added at the discretion of the organisers.
