Reintroducing Windsurf Schools Affiliation Scheme. 2010

To all New Zealand windsurfing schools,

As I hope you are aware, after a long quiet period Windsurfing New Zealand has sprung back into life in the last year and is now reviving as a strong national sports body.

WNZ Developments.

Review of risk management and safety in the adventure and outdoor commercial sectors

New Zealand's adventure tourism safety record is again in the spotlight, with UK family members of tourists who lost their lives in accidents starting a group demanding changes. There is a review underway and it may be appropriate for WNZ to engage in this (unfortunately the closing date for submissions has passed - but we will follow up and also monitor the outcomes). Windsurfing has a good safety record, deaths and incidents tend to be incidental rather than directly attributable to the sport, however one area of potential interest for us is that of instruction and schools. The WNZ Instructor training scheme, and the soon to be reinstated school certification could be affected by this review.

Windsurfing development

Windsurfing NZ s working with Yachting NZ (YNZ) to create a recruitment and development pathway for windsurfing. This has been kicked off with a meeting between the two organsations in October 2009. The outcome from this meeting is described in the attached documents.

One of the outcomes of this meeting was to take advantage of the imminent arrival of 6 Techno boards for BOP by creating a publicity opportunity:
