Wildwind Holidays are delighted to announce their sponsorship of two major UK Laser Association events for the 2012 season with two free sailing holidays at the Wildwind base in Vassiliki on offer to the Association’s members.

One holiday will be given to one lucky competitor in the Laser Masters National Championships taking place at Paignton SC from 6-8th July.

To encourage participation in the ten regional series one more holiday will be drawn from all the qualifiers in the 10 Grand Prix Series this year. By doing an extra event or two and qualifying for an overall series prize helms will also qualify for this extra free draw, which will take place at the UKLA Inland Championships in early November.

The holidays include flight from London Gatwick, overseas transfers, accommodation and as much sailing as you can handle.

The first of these Grand Prix Events takes place at Haverland SC tomorrow Saturday 10th March.

If you are keen on getting a head start on the competition, Wildwind also run special Laser training weeks in the early season with Chris Gowers, Paul Goodison’s and British Head Olympic team coach. This year’s dates are from 13-20th May. As of date of publication there are 5 places left.

UKLA Chairman John Ling was enthusiastic about this new partnership, ‘It gives an added benefit to two of the main areas of Association membership and I am sure will receive a great response and participation by our members.’
