Who we are

We are a community of windsport enthusiasts. While windsurfing tends to be the primary topic of conversation, we love any kind of wind propelled sports including windfoiling, kitesurfing, kitefoiling, catamarans, dinghies, larger sailboats and even kite buggies and windskating. Many of us do a variety of these. We love it all and invite conversation on any of it, anything related to it and even other things you think the community would find interesting.

A very brief history

From club newsletter circa mid 1980s on the difference between Windsurfer (then a trademarked term) and sailboard

The Atlanta Boardsailing Club was organized in 1978 and is one of the oldest in the country. We have 'boardsailing' instead of windsurfing in our name because back at the club's origination, Windsurfer and Windsurfing were still trademarks of company that produced the original Windsurfer. Over the years, we've evolved into an on line community, gathering on our forum when we aren't on the water. Hang out with us here, at a local beach or on a club trip. A lot of us having been doing this a long time but none of us have forgotten what it was like starting off. There is no attitude, here. We're happy to share information and tips and love to see new faces in the neighborhood. Events

Recurring events

There are two main events on our annual calendar that you are always welcome to, whether you are new or experienced:

  • Our annual Fall Classic regatta, the nation's longest running windsurfing event, is held each October on Lake Lanier
  • Our Holiday Party is held each December is a great opportunity to catch up with friends, meet new people and mark the beginning of the deep winter windsurfing season.
