AWA camping weekend - Mangawhai

Fri 21 Feb 2014 - Sun 23 Feb 2014
Auckland

The annual AWA (http://awa.org.nz) camping weekend has been scheduled for Friday 21, Sat 22 and Sun 23 February 2014 at http://mangawhaiheadsholidaypark.co.nz/.

This is a very family oriented event with supping, windsurfing, surfing and maybe some racing if the wind cooperates. Mangawhai is only 1:15 hrs away from Auckland and has harbour and ocean side sailing catering for all levels of sailing. Here is a link to what may be in store http://www.sessionlogs.com/spot-67-525/mangawhai%2Dheads-video-gallery. High Tide is at noon.

AWA News Nov 2013

Tides
Saturday high tide: 8.30am | Sunday high tide: 9.40am
hot spot
The Weekend forecast not looking to promising. A big high over the North Island, with light West
to SW winds. We might get some sea breezes late in the afternoon but windguru and other sites
all say a similar thing. Light winds.
With very little wind about it will be a matter of keeping an eye on a late afternoon sea breeze
filling in and big gear, otherwise get the Sup out. There might be some light wind formula sailing
at Pt Chev close to the high tides if the forecast holds.

Windsurfing New Zealand Club News May 2013

Its that time of the year again when we ask you to pay your affiliation fee and start thinking about next season. This modest fee helps pay for the event insurance we offer clubs, our membership fees with ISAF, and the costs of advocacy and promotion of the sport.

The final day of Sail Auckland 2012 was plagued by light winds and extremely shifty conditions.
There were no races completed today in the 470, 420, Laser, Laser Radial and Finn, so final results in those divisions are the ones that remain from yesterday. The RS:X, SKUD 18 and 2.4mR were the lucky three classes to finish both of their races as scheduled, and the 29er and 49er skiffs had just one.

06/02/2012

New Zealand’s selected Olympians for 2012 are all proving their status as top in their fleet of NZ, and two National Champions are about to emerge as favourable conditions continued today.
The Women’s RS:X now sees Kohimarama Yacht Club’s Steffanie Williams in the lead, with Australia’s Jessica Crisp and the NZL Sailing Team’s Natalia Kosinska only a handful of points behind. The highly competitive Men’s RS:X standings have remained the same today, with Switzerland’s Richard Stauffacher maintaining a narrow lead over 2011 Men’s RS:X World Champion Dorian Van Rijsselberghe of the Netherlands. JP Tobin (Men’s RS:X ) is giving time for his foot wound to heal and is not competing.

04/01/2012

Message from YNZ: As many of you will be aware Yachting New Zealand, with the support and drive of the Harbour Access Trust (HAT) (The developer) are endeavouring to build a High performance Centre and new headquarters in conjunction with a secure hard stand for Olympic Classes at Takapuna Beach. We need lots of support for this first stage so please file a submission in support of the Yachting New Zealand Hard stand application and forward to whoever you can, requesting they do the same. Read full article for application details and submission form.

Despite a lack of wind, and several showers coming through, a good time was had by all at the youth slalom clinic. The spot prizes from Carbon Art went down a treat, and at the end a Carbon Art slalom board came out for a spin – it was apparently “amazing!” Here are a few photos from the day .. http://youth.windsurfingnz.org/

15/12/2011

Due to wind conditions and safety concerns, the youth slalom clinic which is being held this Saturday, December 17th, will be at LAKE PUPUKE instead of Takapuna Beach as originally advertised. Same start time, 11am. Remember Alan of Madloop is based at the lake and has gear to hire if you need it.
