Sail-World.com : RYA Go Windsurfing - A book for young people
RYA Go Windsurfing - A book for young people


'The RYA has launched the 7th book in its Go! series.'    Emma Slater / RYA
RYA Go Windsurfing! written and illustrated by Claudia Myatt is the seventh book that has been launched by RYA in its Go! series.

The books in the RYA Go! series are renowned for their excellent illustrations, easy reading style and engaging content which make them particularly appealing to children aged 7 - 12 and RYA Go Windsurfing! is no exception.

The book takes readers from where to start and how to rig up their board, to learning to steer and starting to race, as well as covering all the important elements children need to know to stay safe while out windsurfing in a clear and entertaining manner. There is also an informative section at the back which explores some amazing windsurfing facts like who invented windsurfing and how fast can a windsurfer go?

The foreword is written by British Sailing Team and Olympic Bronze medallist Bryony Shaw who says: 'I hope that this brilliant book will help young people learn everything about windsurfing so that you can have even more fun racing, doing freestyle tricks or just enjoy being out on the water.'

When talking about writing the book author Claudia comments: 'I got wetter researching RYA Go Windsurfing! than all the other watersports put together but it was huge fun.

'The book is designed to take readers on a journey right through the windsurfing education from the early falling-in stages up to the moment it just clicks and the board takes off!'

RYA Go Windsurfing! is perfect for children wanting to become involved in the sport, helping the reader progress through all four stages of the RYA Youth Windsurfing Scheme (Youth Stage, 1, 2, 3, and 4), after which you can progress into the racing scheme, which the book also briefly discusses.

Purchase a copy of RYA Go Windsurfing! from the RYA Shop before 30 June 2013 (all back orders will be automatically included) and you will be entered into a free prize draw to win a one-off painting by the book’s author Claudia Myatt. Taking your favourite ‘on-the-water’ photo, Claudia will turn it into a one-off painting especially for you.

The prize draw will close on 30 June 2013 and a winner will be selected at random by the RYA Publications team.
