Laurence's PWA New Caledonia adventure #3

Well its been a huge week of racing for me and everyone. The trade wind's have been strong every day, which have made for three days of hectic racing. The afternoons have been the strongest winds around 20-25knots constant.

Tomorrow is the final day

Over the last two days we have had another five eliminations. I have had a mixture of results where I am finally starting to feel comfortable with the location and wind. Tomorrow is the last day of racing where it is expected to be the windiest day so far (around 30+knots). Check out the live feed on the PWA website for all the action.

Laurence's PWA New Caledonia adventure #2

After two days of no wind, Noumea has certainly decided to deliver. The next four days are forecast to be the same strength as today (20+knots). It will be a huge battle where fatigue will be a huge factor. Today was an absolutely epic day! Words can't express how much I have learnt but also how much fun I had.

Laurence's PWA New Caledonia adventure #1

PWA - New Caledonia

After an absolutely hectic semester at university, I finished exams on Friday (November 14th). I had a look at the forecast for the next day and a solid 30+knots was forecast. I wasn’t planning on sailing however there was the North Island Champs so I couldn't say no to a bit of competition. Thpacking.

2014 Elements Spring Racing - a windsurfing success

Those that attended this season starter were not disappointed - once again it delivered conditions that we are assured are not typical, with winds varying from one extreme to the other to provide opportunities for all 'wind persuasions' to excel at some stage or other. It was great to see an increased number of young sailors. Big thanks to the sponsors and those that made the event possible. The Auckland and Wellington events have a high bar to aspire to now. An excellent write up of the event is available on the BOP Windsurfers site. More...
