Sail 100km and support the Westpac Chopper Appeal. As part of the Westpac Chopper Appeal Bruce Spedding is planning to try windsurfing 100km in a day, weather permitting sometime during May. You could too.

Wellington Harbour Blast cancelled

Again we have been left wanting for wind. The weather forecast for this weekend is not likely to produce enough wind for the Harbour Blast and the direction is also poor very for that side of the Harbour. This is the second time this season we have tried to run this event and this time we are cancelling till next season. We were just unlucky.

Thanks for all your support and hard work towards making this event happen! Hope you all have a good weekend in the sun, looks like it will continue into next week too!
