BWA seeking Principal Tour Sponsor

After four years of operation the British Wavesailing Association (BWA) Tour has grown in size and stature with record number of entries and year on year growth in TV, print and web exposure.
The BWA Tour consists of 4 events across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales culminating in the UK Championship titles.
The Tour is run by a voluntary executive committee of sports enthusiasts committed to delivering the most exciting wave tour in Europe and well as developing UK Watersports talent.
The BWA is now seeking a principal sponsor for the Tour.

If you think your company or brand would benefit from sponsorship of the BWA Tour, please call Nigel to discuss the benefits of being the principal sponsor.

Date amendment - Tiree Wave Classic 2014

Date amendment: Event will now start a day later. This is to allow more amateurs travel time.
All Amateur fleets (Youth, Ladies, Ams, Masters) will run Sun 12th Oct – Fri 17th Oct 2014

Pro fleets final dates are yet to be announced as we await confirmation of PWA dates.
BWA  announce dates for 2014.

The BWA UK Wave Tour 2014 kicks off with the challenging back-to-back Wales/Ireland event. A weekend of competition and partying at Rhosneigr followed by the now famous road trip to the West coast of Ireland for a week of Kerry waves and Guinness.
Then after a summer break we head North for 7 days of amazing Scottish hospitality at the Tiree Wave Classic. The tour then heads deepest south 2 weeks later for the final event in Cornwall where the leaders will fight out the coveted Championship titles.

New for 2014:
Wales: Event is extended by a day for Pro fleets with a Thursday start.
Scotland: Due to a close PWA event we have the option to stagger the event for the pro fleets (TBC).
Cornwall: We are introducing a ‘forecast day’ for Cornwall (pros only) allowing the organisers the option of adding a day either side for pro competitors.
The Ams dates for Tiree are announced with Pro dates to be confirmed once PWA dates are in place.

As always, the dates are provisional but at present there is no reason to change for Ams.

Pro:s 8-11 May
Ams: 10-11 May

12 – 16 May

Ams: 12-17 Oct (Amended 24.01.14)
Pros: To be announced. Awaiting final PWA dates.

31 Oct – 2 Nov
We are also including the facility to extend an additional ‘Pro Forecast Day’ of either 30 Oct or 3 Nov for Pros only.
This day will be added at the discretion of the organisers.
