Windsurfing Heaven!

The last few days have seen perfect conditions for everyone at this years' Fleadh Sheoil! Saturday gave us lots of wind and sunshine, to keep the slalom sailors and 'free-riders' happy. Today saw slightly lighter winds. Perfect for beginners and improvers. It also gave some old school freestylers a chance to dazzle the young guns!

Fleadh Sheoil na hÉireann 2008!

At Malahide Yacht Club, Broadmeadows Estuary, from May 3rd to 5th 2008, the Fleadh Sheoil na hÉireann (Windsurfing Festival of Ireland) is being held. Organised by DMG Sailsports and Surfdock, this years event is shaping up to be one of the best yet. Come along and support this Irish Windsurfing Association event. Just one of many run throughout the year. All levels from total beginners, to the advanced and experienced sailor are welcome!
