An FTP archive for rec.windsurfing exists on
( in the directory /pub/rec.windsurfing. The contents
include the following:

Gorge-info    Common questions about sailing the Columbia River Gorge.

              More useful info from Wilton about sailing and vacationing
              in the Corpus Christi TX area.

SF-info       Windsurfing shops and launch sites in the San Francisco

NZ-info       Sailing sites and conditions in New Zealand. Compiled by

wind-numbers  Phone numbers for various wind reporting services
              throughout the nation compiled from net postings. Please
              contribute additions or deletions.

net-weather   A FAQ on obtaining weather data over the Internet.

pictures      Subdirectory containing windsurfing bitmaps in gif
              and jpeg formats (crissy.gif is still my favorite).

threads       Subdirectory containing interesting threads of
              discussion. If you ask a question and get many replies
              then most likely it was a good question that others will
              want an answer to in the future. Send your digest to

              Current threads avaiable :
                videos          Reviews of instructional videos
                contacts        Contact lens experiences
                hatteras        Cape Hatteras sailing info
                upwind          Upwind techniques for shortboards

Please send *anything* you feel should be added to this archive to

I will try to handle e-mail requests from those without ftp access, as
long as the volume is not too high.
