Investment in Outdoor Recreation - the next step for Windsurfing NZ

What outcomes are being sought?
SPARC is seeking applications that will ultimately lead to increased long-term participation by young people, through:
1. improving organisational capability that leads to more effective service delivery;
2. improving national leadership to better co-ordinate delivery of outdoor recreation;
3. developing skills and knowledge to participate in outdoor recreation, by deliverers of opportunities.
SPARC is not seeking proposals to create more participation opportunities, unless they address at least one of the three outcomes referred to above. Read on ...

[UK] Sailing instructors rise by 1,500 in a year

The number of dinghy, windsurfing and powerboat instructors in England has risen by almost 1,500 in the last year. The rise comes since the launch of the RYA's Adult Participation Programme, funded through Sport England, which aims to increase and develop the number of adults regularly sailing and windsurfing.

Expression of Interest : Funding proposal (SPARC) to promote youth windsurfing has passed the first hurdle

Windsurfing NZ has put in an Expression of Interest (EOI) for funding over the next 3 years to employ someone to promote windsurfing at the youth / yacht club level. This would be backed up with other initiatives to support the development of clubs and promote windsurfing in general. The 2 page submission has been accepted by SPARC but there's a lot of competition so we will now start working on the next phase of the proposal. If you would like to be involved in any way please contact Bruce Spedding. The 2 page submission is included below.

USA plan to reboot youth windsurfing backs up Windsurfing NZ approach

This recent interview with Nevin Sayre demonstrates how lucky NZ has been so far to be as successful as we have been on the International scene, particularly at the Olympics. The interview confirms not only the recent resurgence in windsurfing but also outlines the strategies for getting more kids into windsurfing and more success in competition. Its a powerful affirmation of the approach WNZ is taking to do the same here. Click more to see the full interview.
