Wellington Wave Champs / Freewave Round 1

The Wellington Wave Champs 2010 (also the first round of the freewave) was held today at Plimmerton in some pretty extreme conditions at times.

James Court tells the story ...

Wave Event

(draft )

Wave event specific

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.

2010 Carbon Art Rodgers Dental New Zealand Wavesailing Nationals

The 2010 windsurfing wave nationals final was a family affair with team La Franchie reaching the top two positions. Chris dominated the final, as he dominated the rest of the competition. He consistently landed aerials off the outside peak and was laying in the most radical turns. These were vertical bottoms turns flowing at full speed onto the other rail and gauging 270° back into the white water. The thousands of top turns Taranaki has gifted these two brothers, showed through in their smooth style, wave timing and selection. Chris is the leading sailor in Taranaki at the moment and is showing the standard required for all the aspiring champion wave sailors out there. Tom Taylor showed he is not just a free style maestro, and has top skills in waves as well. Lots of critical hits and aerials gave him a deserved 3rd place this year.

Lancelin Ocean Classic 2010 - Tim Woods account

As it was the 25th aniversary of the Lancelin Ocean Classic I decided it would the a great year to enter this event and living in New Zealand now it was a little easier to get there as it would have been a really long flight from the UK. Thomas Davies and Jebbe Unthank also decided that it would be a good experience. I arrived in Perth on New Years Eve and spent a few days there before collecting the motorhome that we had hired and travelled to Lancelin. I sailed a couple of times in the bay at Lancelin prior to the event, but that still didn’t prepare me for what was to come ...
