As excited as we are to make this announcement, we do know
that some of you have already changed travel plans due to our
cancellation notice that went out just a few days ago. We are
so sorry for the confusion of the changing situation and the
travel arrangement troubles that may have been caused.
Everyone involved is working hard to make sure that the event
will be fantastic and we hope to see you all there! Head AWT
judge Matt Pritchard says "The US Nationals are the backbone
of racing in the USA! We need to keep the flame alive and do
everything we can to save the Nationals for 2012!"
And remember, the summer calendar is packed with other great
events also. The Formula North American Championships will
take place in San Francisco from July 17-22, San Carlos Cactus
Cup Wave Contest is in San Carlos, Mexico from July 28-August
4, The Techno 293 Nationals/Kona New England
Championships/RS:X East Coast Championships in Martha's
Vineyard from July 31-August 2 and the Kona North American
Championships in Waconia, MN from August 24-28.
The full calendar of events can be found at
a cool mention of CalCup on the latest post from DaNews Blog:
important changes to the CalCup rules for 2012: If
racing is canceled for any reason on the scheduled Saturday
date, the racing will be re-run the very next day (Sunday)
that same weekend. If the whole weekend (Saturday and Sunday)
ends up as a DNR (Did Not Race), that event will NOT be
re-scheduled at a later date. There are no make up dates.

news from Karen Marriot, the president of US Windsurfing!
"Hi All, First, big news…….The Berkeley Yacht Club board of
directors just voted last night and decided to host the 2011
US Windsurfing Nationals! Jane Morson, who has done lots of
work with running Formula races and the Cal Cup in the Bay
Area, will be the main organizer and I am confident that she
will do a fantastic job! The dates are July 11-16, which is
before the Techno 293 worlds at St Francis – so we are hoping
that some of the international kids (and our US kids) who come
to that will come to Nationals as a warm-up regatta. So start
spreading the word so folks can be making their plans to
travel to the “warm side” of the bay for next summer’s
