Cal Cup Aug 2 - F4 fins, Junior clinic and tons of breeze
Photo of Mike Percey worshiping his new F4 fin. The first Cal Cup of August was in extremely windy conditions at Coyote Point where the ebb and over 30 knots of breeze made for some very dramatic conditions. Listen to Ben Bamer talk about the hot new SF Bay area fin for formula racing: the F4
The CalCup started earlier in the day with a wonderful junior clinic and board repair clinic at Crown Beach in Alameda. The wind was very light at Alameda and awesome for teaching young people. Jane Moreson had invited Cal Adventures to attend the clinic and it was great meeting with them as they teach a great deal of juniors throughout the summer. The clinic was at Crown Beach, a post for Boardsports school (another location for excellent windsurfing instruction in the SF Bay area). President of US Windsurfing, Jim MacGrath, supported the clinic too...thank you Jim! While few juniors showed up, we did have a few people out in the light breeze having fun. The wind proved to be too light for racing so the racing fleet drove over to Coyote for some killer breeze.
