South Island Cup Report

The first round of the South Island Cup got underway on the 5th Dec' in Dunedin with a perfect sunny day. We had 18 men and 6 women enter, so the men were split into two heats so the starts weren't to dangerous!

We started out in 15-18 knots with most on 7m sails, had 2 rounds then a short break, another 2 rounds in similar conditions, at which time the tide was getting a little low so some of the marks had to be moved. The next 2 rounds the wind had increased slightly, some changed down to 6.4/5.9m sails and smaller boards.

Slalom windsurfing is for the windsurfers who love to combine speed with tactical challenges. Slalom windsurfing is an internationally renowned high-wind sport. Slalom windsurfing was a rage during the 80's and the early 90's. Its popularity slowly declined due to the complicated quiver (collection of windsurfing equipments) required to sail efficiently at top wind speeds.

Windsurfing options - there are more than you think!

  • Techno 293 - the 'junior' Olympic class, the ideal entry for young sailors. The skills learned here will set kids up for any kind of windsurfing, and of course there's always the possibility of yet another Olympic medal
  • RS:X Olympic - the current Olympic class board on which Tom Ashley won the Beijing Olympic Gold in 2008

Gun Okato windsurfer cleans up

Okato's James Dinnis has beaten the best windsurfers in the United States.

The Taranaki man yesterday won the open men's event at the US windsurfing championships at the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon, taking out seven of the 11 races.

"He was pretty stoked when I talked to him this morning," his wife, Vanessa, said. "But he couldn't take the title because he wasn't an American.

"The title was awarded to the winner of the grand masters division ... he was the American with the highest points over the 11 races."
