Northwest Regional Windsurfing Events 2004

NWBA Home | May | June | July | August | Sept | Oct


This schedule is not 100% comprehensive (but close). Other regional event calendars:

In additon to these northwest events, also check out the US Windsurfing National Tour. US Windsurfing has organized major regional regattas across the US into a national racing series. In addition to great course racing, these events include freestyle contests, “learn-to-windsurf” clinics, pro clinics, and youth programs. Travelling to these events can be a lot of fun - checking out the windsurfing scene and meeting sailors from other parts of the country! Nearby venues include the Columbia River Gorge (July 24-25), and San Francisco, CA.

The 2004 US Windsurfing National Championships will be held in San Francisco, CA on July 12-17.
