RYA Scotland, in partnership with the British Wavesailing Association (BWA) and the Tiree Wave Classic Organising Committee (through Wild Diamond Windsurfing Centre) are proud to announce the second Youth & Junior Windsurfing Wave Camp within the internationally renowned Tiree Wave Classic Event. The Team 15 Tiree Wave Camp will take place from the 15th - 19th of October on the Island of Tiree.
In addition we would like to welcome new sponsors The Mailing Room to the team,
'Windsurfing is a great way for anyone to get exercise outside and have fun. The Mailing Room wanted to help the BWA and associated bodies who put so much effort into making these events happen”, notes George Bevan, of the Mailing Room, in announcing the sponsorship of the camp. “We hope that on the future our sponsorship of the youth training events will bring more people into the sport.”
The event will have a fun packed four and a half days of windsurfing from some of the best coaches in the UK. The camp for the second year will have the exciting format from 2015 where the entrees will get the opportunity to be part of the Tiree Wave Classic (TWC). For two days the kids will get the opportunity to be judged by the TWC judging panel all with the support of the RYA Scotland/BWA coaching team. RYA Scotland and its partners have organised a fun filled week on some of the best windsurfing beaches in the world.

The RYA Scotland Team 15 Tiree Wave Camp is a unique opportunity to develop your skills on the waves. With a top class coaching team from across the UK you will progress through the week building confidence in waves and improving our overall skill level. No matter how long or short you have windsurfed for we want to see you on the water.
So equipment to use in the waves is key to having a fun filled week. First up is personal kit - you must have a suitable wetsuit for the conditions and weather, please bring hats and gloves and a suitable over jacket to keep you warm. All sailors must wear a Bouyancy Aid and a Helmet. If you require a helmet then please get in touch with me directly.
Boards -We recommend short boards of no less than 80L (dependant on sailor size) and of a wave/freeride style. The age of the board is not important as long as it floats and you can make it go. Bigger boards are fine for blasting about on and playing in small waves but we recommend nothing larger than 140L.
Sails/Rigs - Don’t panic we are not expecting you to come with the biggest quiver of sails in the world but it would be great if you can come with two sails one that you can comfortably sail on in ideal conditions and a change down (Tiree is windy) there is no ideal sail size to recommend as everybody is different but the larger sail should not exceed 6m. For all you wave heads out there, have no fear you probably have the right kit. If you are unsure about kit then please get in touch directly with me email@example.com
If you are looking to hire equipment then you must get in touch with Wild Diamond now to book your kit. They have a full range of kit from boards to wetsuits.

Tiree is a beautiful place and offers some fantastic holiday locations with lots of cottages and hostels to stay in. However the TWC does mean the island is busy so it’s worth getting booked up.
