NSKA Installs Hunter Wind Sensor
The Hunter wind sensor is back!  With the help of the paragliders we've found a great spot to keep and maintain the Hunter sensor.  The data can be found here:

NSKA Race Boards are Available 
The  NSKA is happy to announce the arrival of the official NSKA Slingshot Race Board fleet.  These boards are available for use by NSKA members and are located in the center.  A sign up sheet is located above the board rack and has the rules and regs for using them.   Essentially they are for members only use in Bellingham Bay.  Please report any damage so we can fix 'em professionally. And don't ride in shallow water!!!  The fin boxes aren't designed for dredging.  While these are great one design race boards, they also make excellent light wind weapons.  Don't have a big kite for light wind?  No worries, grab one of these babies and pump up your 12!!!
