34th Annual Endless Summer Sailboard Classic

Our Endless Summer Sailboard Classic is scheduled for October 15th-17th, 2021.  In order to help make this year’s event a success we are currently looking for sponsors, donations of cash, in kind services or goods for the swag bag or raffles. 

We our asking all of our Shell Point Sailboard Club members to please consider helping make our club’s event a huge success by  contacting your favorite businesses in town that you patronize on a regular basis for donations (see attached sponsorship opportunities available).

We are a not-for-profit recreational organization that is completely run by volunteers which is pretty impressive when you see that this event is now in its 34th year!

 

For those that have previously donated we thank you and humbly ask if you would please consider becoming a sponsor once again.

 

We appreciate your support in helping our club continue to carry on this wonderful event.

The Event - The Endless Summer Sailboard Classic is sponsored by the Shell Point Sailboard Club and others. This don't- miss regatta weekend has plenty of racing and fun to offer for both the serious racer and the social regatta participant. A Swamidelic custom shirt by Homestead is also provided to commemorate the event. Racing format is determined by the wind conditions and may include course race, slalom, long distance and/or freestyle; with trophies going to the top three finishers in each class. Add great door prizes to the mix and you have a don't-miss regatta! The many event activities are listed below.

Registration - Register online using credit/debit/Paypal. 

Classes (Classes may be added or eliminated at the discretion of the Race Committee)

  • Longboard (unlimited and limited 7.5m2)

  • Kona (Kona will follow international sailor-weight / sail-size rules)

  • Windsurfer LT

  • Sport (7.52m limited)

  • Novice

We have Windsurfer LT charters for $100 or Kona charters for $125.  The LTs are in short supply, so if you wish to race LT reserve one early.  The charters MUST be reserved ahead of time so Cody can bring the right numbers with the right sail sizes. If you wish to charter contact Cody Steward from Sandy Point Progressive Sports (cs.stubbz@outlook.com), and, if you would, copy me, Bob Graves (djbobbyg@gmail.com) so that I can get an idea of fleet sizes.

 

My hope is that some of you that haven't raced in a while might charter some gear and join us on the race course once again.  The sail size for Windsurfer LT is 5.7 and sail size for Kona is based on your weight which is shown below, just convert the KG to LBs.

About our Endless Summer Event . . .

The Endless Summer Sailboard Classic, held in the fall, is a don't miss for the serious racer. The event generally begins with a welcome party on the beach, with hot buffalo wings served up in the evening, washed down with cold beverages. Camping and motel rooms are available but reservations for both are recommended. On-site registration is Saturday morning, which includes customized t-shirts by Homestead Handcrafts, course and long distance racing, trophies 3-deep, and dinner and entertainment Saturday night. The SPSC sponsorship committee ensures that everyone goes home with great door prizes, generously donated by windsurfing retailers and manufacturers.

Our idea came from "The Endless Summer", a seminal surf movie released in 1966, after a limited showing in 1964.

They call it The Endless Summer the ultimate surfing adventure, crossing the globe in search of the perfect wave. From the uncharted waters of West Africa, to the shark-filled seas of Australia, to the tropical paradise of Tahiti and beyond, these California surfers accomplish in a few months what most people never do in a lifetime...They live their dream. Director Bruce Brown creates a film so powerful it has become a timeless masterpiece that continues to capture the imagination of every new generation. When it first played in theaters, audiences lined up to see it again and again, spellbound by its thrilling excitement and awesome photography. But in fact, what's most compelling about the film is the sport of surfing itself, and once you've seen it, you'll never forget why.
