Hey all, FYI the 2012 schedule is up here www.gorgecup.com. Yeeha, 11 days of racing, including the Blowout and Nationals organized by Green Flag Watersports (Darren Rogers)! Check it out www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFdta6jEZFU

Take note that due to popular demand and a welcomed increase in new participants last year, first time racers will have entry fees waived for their first race. Hope to see you all soon, the weather gods willing (HR has been in the low 30's!).

What type of gear do people use during this race series, FW, Slalom, both?

There has only been one day over that past two seasons that we ran a FW heat then changed to slalom for the rest of the day. It seems that more and more folks are setting up to cover the lighter days with big slalom gear(120L boards/9.x sails) therefore, less likelihood that FW is needed. The race committee is still prepared to run FW if needed.

Hey Gary,

This is what US windsurfing association posted on facebook as to why the us nationals were cancelled:

US Windsurfing regrets to inform you that the 2012 US Windsurfing Nationals in Hood River will NOT be taking place. A variety of organizational issues has lead us to make this difficult decision. Rather than continuing to struggle to pull together a poorly organized event, we decided that it would be best to cancel the event far enough in advance for travel plans to be adjusted. We deeply regret the inconvenience and trouble that this will cause to the people who have already made unchangeable arrangements to attend. At least you still be in a fantastic place for windsurfing at a great time of year. The Formula windsurfing National champion will instead be crowned during the Formula Windsurfing North American Championships that are being held in San Francisco from July 19-22. We also encourage you to attend the American Windsurfing Tour San Carlos Cactus Cup wave event which will be held from July 28-August 4 in Baja, Mexico. Planning is underway for the 2013 US Windsurfing Nationals, we will announce the location soon. Thank you all for your membership and support of windsurfing events in the United States.


but, they just posted this a few minutes ago!:

Breaking news.....Sam Bittner (organizer of the AWT wave tour), the CGWA and a group of Hood River locals have launched operation "Rescue the Nationals"! The event is back! Official announcement to be released soon!
