Downwinder + Dinner

 

Kiterfing Downwinder

Start:     Beach Lane, Wainscott
Arrival:   The beach in front of "Gurney's Inn" (290 Old Montauk Hwy, Montauk)
Date:     A Weekend in October (further details below)

Downwinder Details

  • A bus will be provided to drive kiters from Gurney's Inn to the departure point in Wainscott (Beach Lane)
  • East Hampton Ocean Rescue team will follow the event with jet-skis and beach trucks to provide support, along with other volunteers.
  • Arrival will be on the beach in front of "Gurney's Inn" (290 Old Montauk Hwy, Montauk). Gurney's Inn will provide free access to showers and changing rooms for the kiters.
  • Date: Since we obviously need wind, we have made the downwinder event date flexible. It will take place on a Saturday or Sunday during the month of October).  We will inform the participants during the week prior to the event, based on how the wind report looks for the upcoming weekend.  We know that some who sign up as participants may not be able to make the event because of this flexible schedule (unless you keep your weekends free!).   We hope you sign up as a participant anyway and try.  Worst that happens is you support a good cause.

Dinner Details

  • The event will be followed by drinks and a dinner for the kiters and their friends at Gurney's Inn.
  • Feel free to invite friends and family at Gurney's Inn to support the kiters at the arrival on the beach and to join at the dinner that will follow (Gurneys will be offering some discounts on dinner or complementary dinner for participants to support the event – details to follow asap).
