What is Mayo Mayhem?
Mayo Mayhem is Ireland's No 1 Windsurfing Wave sailing competition. We like to think that Mayo Mayhem is the most fun and welcoming windsurfing competition in the world, which just also happens to have epic conditions.
It was set up with the aim of giving windsurfers a great reason to meet up and have some fun while pushing their windsurfing limits.
Mayo Mayhem is based on Achill Island with the option to compete on any one of Mayo's finest beaches. With such a variety of location to choose from there is a strong possibility of competing on both Port and Starboard tack, side on to super clean side off down the line wave sailing. The conditions range from light float and ride to epic Red Bull Storm Chase conditions.
Should you compete?
This fleet is for advanced rides, some may be sponsored and some will not. Most but not all the fleet can do forward loops and some can do push loops / back loops. Being able to loop is not a necessity but it certainly helps. That said some very good non loopers with very good wave riding skills can still be very competitive in this fleet. The level for this competition would not be as high as the PWA standard.
Gold fleet
Silver fleet
This fleet is open to first time wave sailors up to some very competent wave sailors. Some at the top of the fleet might be landing the odd forward but most wont. If you can gybe sometimes, water start and are comfortable blasting about in strong winds and waves, then this fleet is for you. During the competition we select locations and conditions that are suitable for both fleets and may stagger the fleets to make sure the conditions are appropriate to each fleet. This fleet is famous for the friendliness of all those who compete in it , that said it can also be fiercely competitive with sailors of similar levels having personal battles throughout the fleet.
