Trip Report – Fuerteventura, June 2015

TWC at the Mistral Centre

Seven days of perfect wind, fantastic weather, flat water & waves. It was windsurfing heaven.

The Hotel was superb, with lovely large rooms and plenty of space for two blokes to share.

There were 6 people from TWC leaving from East Midlands airport on the Saturday, with 2 others joining later in the week. There was a bit of a delay with the transfers from the Hotel (and back again), but we got there in the end. Another year, I think we’ll sort out our own transfers.

Every day was full on Windsurfing, and we all came back beaten , bruised and knackered – but it was worth it ! Usually by 10pm we were all nodding off (maybe it’s our age !!).

Speed was up first on the Agenda, with all the TWC members kitted out with GPS units.

Mike made a good start on the first day, setting the benchmark…

Here are the results.

We had a couple of GoPro units with us, so these were put to good use to get some good footage of the trip.
