College Windsurfing Nationals

For the first time in years college kids had the chance to race against each other and represent their schools at an inter-collegiate windsurfing race!  The event took place in St Petersburg, Florida and was hosted by the University of South Florida, St Pete and was raced on Kona’s.  The event was small, with only four schools represented, but the hope is that this will become an annual event and participation will grow.  Chris Gardiner from University of Florida took first place, with Solvig Sayre from Eckerd College in second place and Justin Ahearn from University of South Florida, St Pete in third.  The windsurfing team from St Mary’s College also made a strong showing.
