Sailfest, the new annual sailing festival, is to take place in August each year at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy as a continuing legacy of the Olympic Games events held there.

GJW Direct SailFest, the WPNSA Annual Handicap Regatta, has been designed to combine coaching, racing, spectator interest and taster activities, throughout a festival style over the August bank holiday weekend.

During all four days of the event there will be a fleet of windsurfers available for fully instructed taster sessions by the Official Test Centre (OTC), based right on the slipway at WPNSA. Booking will be opened in June for 90 minute sessions, running at 4 time-slots each day, for just £17.

Tris Best, of the OTC, is delighted to have Windsurfing included as part of the Festival. 'SailFest is a great event to keep the momentum of the 2012 Olympics going and we're hoping to build on the 780 plus tasters we achieved last summer. Sail sports are more accessible than ever before - an excellent (and enjoyable!) way to keep fit, socialise and make the most of some of the best conditions in Europe that Portland Harbour offers. Come and get involved!'

Alongside the dinghy racing, the OTC will be running a mid-season slalom training camp in association with the British Slalom Association (BSA) - a perfect opportunity to keep your slalom skills honed during the summer break in the series calendar.
