Overall Results 2015

slalom2015The year has drawn to a close so we would like to formally announce the results of the wave and slalom disciplines for 2015. First though, the AGM was held during the final slalom event at Kinvara and a few positions on the committee changed. The IWA would like to take this opportunity to thank both our Secretary Kevin Cunningham and our Treasure Craig Connolly for their time over the last 3 years and who are stepping down. It is great to welcome Paul Rayner and Kieran Adams who will be taking over - thanks to both of you. There will be minutes of the AGM posted on the site soon.

5 ranked slalom events were scheduled for 2015. Newtownards, Castlegregory, Downings, Bantry and Kinvara. However only 3 had enough wind for ranked racing - Downings, Bantry and Kinvara. The top 3 results of the Gold and Silver fleets are.

Finally, a sincere thank you to Energia for their continued support of windsurfing in Ireland and to the many competitors for travelling from the four corners of the country to support the events.
