What to bring to the ECWF Hatteras
What to bring, what to bring? Hmmm….. There's always that last minute decision and usually the answer is, "I'm never gonna need that." Usually it's right before you get to the beach and need exactly the thing you decided wasn't worth the extra 30 seconds to throw in the car.
1) It's simple for gear. Bring EVERYTHING!!!! From your 1.2 meter sail and 28 ltr board all the way up to your 18 meter sail and 450 ltr board. You never know!! If you've got a paddle board, bring that too!!!! In the case of unsailable light winds, the SUP races go over huge!
2) Sunscreen! Bring it, wear it, don't fry!
3) Bring every smiling face you see! If you can't find one, bring them anyway. They will be smiling when they get to the beach. Typically we'll have around 40-60 competitors at the East Coast Windsurfing Festival, but there are way more family and friends watching the competition from the shore. So be sure and bring the family.
