AWA windsport festival

AWA windsports festivalThe AWA windsport festival got underway last Sunday. The day started off with the promise of 15-20 knots from the SW from metservice. The sun started to make its mark on the water in front of the Bayswater yacht club early morning as the grass area adjacent started to fill up with sailors. Kites were inflated and sails were unfurled.

Join a club or start your own

A windsurfing club is a great way to get into windsurfing. Your local windsurfing club will will introduce you into your local windsurfing community. A solo sport like windsurfing can make it hard to get advice on where to sail, what to buy and what to do. By joining a club you'll get all these things an so much more. BBQs, film evenings, instruction days, trips away, competitions, friends and sailing partners.

As in the previous year the 2009 Auckland Freestyle Champs was run again on stand by to get the best conditions possible so the stand by period was set for the whole month of May with each Saturday and Sunday being a possible event day.

The weather systems during that time of the year are normally a bit windier and consistent - but what is normal in these days anyway? The first weekend in May had a terrific forecast, 30+ Knots for 4-5 days in a row but it became quickly apparent that the direction was SE, which is the most unreliable of all for the Auckland area. After a bit of gambling the decision was made to postpone the event to the following weekend. As it turned out the wind never arrived for the first weekend – luckily!

The Auckland Windsurfing Association is now ready to be officially formed.
The aim is to incorporate the Association. Incorporation means that the Association’s property (money, rescue boat? website, buoys, trophies etc) will in future be held by the Association instead of by the members for the time being. The Association can also then enter contracts and open a bank account. The members will only have to pay their subscriptions and can not become liable for any debts or liability the Association may incur.

MetService have closed their enhanced MyWeather services on the public website, however in the interim they have created a public login to their business site www.metconnect.co.nz (Login myweatherplus/weather4u). Most of the information is not new, but the Animated Wind Model shows 3 hourly wind forecasts for the Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch recreational marine areas for the next 48 hours. http://www.metservice.com/default/index.php?alias=mwp_notice

It looks like we may need the assistance of the Association in objecting to a recent bylaw passed by the Auckland Regional Council, I believe that this bylaw has been significantly influenced by incidents with kite surfers at many Auckland beaches over the past few years. Essentially the ARC and harbour master are sectioning off some of our most popular beaches whereby to restrict areas where you are able to windsurf and kite surf.

The New Zealand RS:X National Championships will boast an impressive starting line-up when racing starts this Friday off Takapuna Beach, North Shore City. Plenty of top international windsurfers are already in the country for the RS:X World Championships in January and will compete in this weekend’s Nationals as preparation. Over 60 windsurfers are already entered and with international competitors arriving into New Zealand daily, organisers of the National Championships are anticipating that around 80 windsurfers will take part. Just 20 to 30 of the expected total are New Zealanders with the majority being internationals here early for the World Championships.

Shoal Bay in Bayswater is a popular spot for kite surfers and windsurfers in south-westerly and westerly winds. It is described as the North Shore's most consistent and safe location, especially in outgoing tides, on a New Zealand internet forum for the sport.
