Lake Isabella Speed Week
When: Friday May 10 through Sunday May 19
Who: all levels, from beginners to experts
How: GPS - bring your own, or borrow one of ours

Come whenever you want during this time frame, whenever you think there might be suitable wind, whenever you can sneak out. Sign up with one of the monitors at the AuxDam or Ghetto sailing sites. Borrow a GPS if you don't have your own. Sail your heart out! At the end of your sesh, bring the GPS back to one of the monitors to have the data downloaded. Camp out with your pals. Repeat as desired.

Sunday May 19 at noon (or thereabouts, depending on how tempting the wind), come for the grand winner ceremony, with certificates and prizes given for the fastest times in novice class (having windsurfed less than 12 months), junior (younger than 16), middle-aged male (17 through 64), middle-aged female (17 through 64), and senior (65 plus)

Nuts & bolts:
Rated speeds will be the 2s values as calculated by "GPS-Results", one of the programs approved by www.gps-speedsurfing.com
Both AuxDam as well as Ghetto sailing sites are in a Forest Service fee area. Passes (one-day
$10.-, or annual $50.- can be purchased at the Forest Service office above Launch 19, or the Golden State Surplus store in town (next to the Isabella Supermarket).
All watercraft ought to have a Lake Permit, windsurfers are $30.- annual, which you can purchase at the Shell Station kitty-corner from the MacDonalds.

what about total distance sailed? The people who sail all day everyday, need some competition. over a week, I'm sure the miles would be of extra-ordinary magnitude.

cool - yeah, I'll add a distance category. But in order to not punish the poor sods who still have to take time off to work, I will make it "the greatest distance covered in any 12hr period"

o dear!
this is a speed event. you sail as little or as much as you please, whenever you chose between May 10 and 19, to achieve your fastest 2 sec speed.
The distance award category is a totally optional add-on for those who like to keep track of these things.
