Wind week + Techno launch

Thu 3 Dec 2009 - Sun 13 Dec 2009
Tauranga

A series of windsurfing-related events is scheduled for the week-and-a-bit from Thursday 3 December to Sunday 13 December, to announce the arrival of competitive youth windsurfing in Tauranga.

The events, collectively dubbed ‘Wind Week’ follow the purchase of six new Bic Techno racing boards by the Bay of Plenty Sailing Academy, a charitable trust which has been active in developing dinghy sailing in Tauranga since 2004. The boards, generously funded by TECT, are intended to form the core of a regular youth racing fleet alongside the sailing dinghies at the Tauranga Yacht and Power Boat Club. To this end, the Sailing Academy has been promoting a ‘Learn to Windsurf’ course at Kulim Park and 11 budding sailors aged 13 to 16 are about to graduate. Another after school course will be run in term one of next year.

Youngsters discover pulling power of windsurfing

Windsurfing may be an unusual school holiday activity, but Mad Loop windsurfing school owner Alan McIntosh is right into it. Even his dog does it. His programme has been running for 15 years at Lake Pupuke, North Shore, and runs during school term time as well.
