UKWA National Windsurfing Championships

UK Windsurfing Championships set sail for Bridlington

The return of the hugely-popular UKWA National Windsurfing Championships, supported by East Yorkshire (EY) Events, is on its way to Bridlington on Saturday, 1 and Sunday, 2 July.

Bridlington has played host to this top-class sporting event for over 20 years.

During the weekend, hundreds of spectators are expected to line the Promenade of the North Beach to watch the action-packed races along the spectacular Bridlington coastline.

Racing will be held for four individual fleets. Sailors aged 12-17 will race on the techno board and sailors aged 17+ will race on the RS:X board, this being the Olympic class that Nick Dempsey sailed to a silver medal on in 2012.

Bob Ingram, UKWA chairman and events director, said: “Visiting Bridlington is always a highlight in the UKWA racing calendar. As well as offering our competitors brilliant windsurfing conditions on the water, the clean beaches and overnight parking supported by the council make this event a must. We especially look forward to all of the spectators who flock to the event site and show their support year-after-year.

“In addition to the windsurfing, Bridlington offers great food, bars and shopping for competitors and their families.

“This is an event not to be missed. It is exciting, spectacular and absolutely free for spectators.”

Councillor Richard Burton, cabinet portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Through EY Events, the council is delighted that the UKWA National Windsurfing Championships will again visit Bridlington.

“This popular event is enjoyed by both residents and visitors alike and provides a welcome boost to the local economy.

“The event has become a firm favourite on the UK windsurfing calendar thanks to the high-quality beaches and magnificent coastline, which is perfect for competitions of this calibre.”
