Yachting New Zealand has confirmed that both Area L (SW Pacific) representatives will be voting in favour of kiteboards at the upcoming Annual meeting of the International Sailing Federation, despite lodging its own submission which supports the re-reinstatement of the Windsurfer as an Olympic event.

Windsurfers and coach announced as Life Members of Yachting New Zealand

Barbara Kendall was made a Life Member in 2011, so the new windsurfing Life Members are Aaron McIntosh, Bruce Kendall and Tom Ashley. Also included is Grant Beck, NZ's most successful Olympic sailing coach (windsurfing), so a big boost for windsurfing and well deserved recognition. Congratulations from Windsurfing NZ!
