Windsurfing NZ Public Liability Insurance update 2014-2015

The latest insurance documents have been uploaded - although the current policy expires today we have an extension for 2 weeks while the policy is rolled over. This policy covers Windsurfing NZ and all its affiliated clubs and associations. It also covers kitesurfing activities.

Race Series Rules - currently being drafted but based on the Maui Race Series Rules (copy attached). These rules begin ...
SPORTSMANSHIP AND SAFETY
Racers will conduct themselves to ensure the safety of other racers. They will do nothing to endanger other racers, and will sacrifice their rights under these rules to avoid dangerous situations. This principle takes precedence over all racing rules.

Windsurfing Event safety check-out / check-in board

At the recent Eastbourne Windsurfing Fun Slalom event we trialled a check-out / check-in board system for managing safety. I first encountered this at the National Slalom event in Dunedin and it worked well, so I decided to try it here. It worked well so here's the details on how to make and use your own (total cost $6)

4. SIGNING ON & OFF THE WATER

It is critical that the organisers know at all times who is, or is not, at the race venue. In order to manage this, the following system is to be used:

a) Upon competitor registration for each days racing, you will be allocated with a metal disk. This disk will have your sail number written on it.

Freestyle event specifics

Each competitor in a heat will be handed a coloured rash shirt by the judges immediately before the heat. Once a competitor has completed the heat, the competitor must return the rash shirt to the judges. This indicates that the competitor is off the water.

Only those competitors in a heat will be monitored on the water by the judges. If you choose to go out sailing outside of your heat, you are considered to be freesailing and not the responsibility of the organiser.
