Bay of Plenty Windsurfers

Elements Watersports Spring Racing - The Match Report

Another magic Tauranga morning raised a few concerns early on, but those enthusiastic competitors who had made the effort to roll down to Fergusson Park early were more than happy to register and wait. Along with Alexander from A’ND Distribution, some of Auckland’s finest sailors had also made the trip down for a bit of ‘Bay action’.

WNZ Instructor 2 day course

Tue 11 Oct 2011 - Wed 12 Oct 2011

Cost: $350 Date: 11-12th Oct
Master Instructor: Peter Head Venue: TYPBC, Tauranga
This is an 18 hour course which runs from 9-6pm on both days each day (times may vary to suit the progress of the group). This allows full content of course to be learned and practiced thoroughly before Instructors gain their qualification and teach 'real' students, and for the course timetable to be tailored to make the best of the weather and tide conditions.
The course is based on the RYA teaching system, but has been simplified for New Zealand conditions, and uses a teaching method developed here which has proven effective. It is recognised and encouraged by YachtingNZ.
