IMPORTANT: Windsurf South Island Cup Round 1 POSTPONED

The Windsurf South Island Cup Round 1 scheduled to run in Christchurch on Saturday and Sunday November 27 and 28 2010 has been deferred until an appropriate date after the Christmas holidays.

This is due to high tide at 9am Saturday and 10 am Sunday meaning the Estuary is not a viable venue as the water will be too low by the time and if the wind comes up, and I am told there may be little interest from local competitors if we shift to Lyttelton Harbour or Lake Ellesmere. Lyttelton is also difficult to set a course.

Clearwater @ Show Weekend:

Classic nor'west weather made for happy CWA campers at Lake Clearwater over Show Weekend. Friday and Saturday were calm & sunny in the morning, and windy and sunny in the afternoon. Sunday saw the nor'wester die away, only to be replaced by a cooler sou'west change. Three days of action in this fantastic mountain location took me five days back in the office to recover!

The winds are stronger, the days are longer so its time to get that windsurfer thats been lurking in your garage out. Check everything is still working and safe, and get back onto the water.

Starting with the Taranaki Wavesailing Classic, one of New Zealands biggest and most social event on the windsurfing calendar, this week will feature a number of activities around the country to mark the start of the 'windsurfing season'.

These are dynamic times, and we'd like you to get involved, starting with the Annual General Meeting on September 7, at The Speight's Ale House, Ferry Road, from 7:30pm. Apart from the usual committee elections, we hope to have a presentation on the state of the estuary, plus it's a great opportunity to catch up and discuss places to sail.

Almost $12 million was committed yesterday by the Government, Environment Canterbury (ECan), Fonterra and Ngai Tahu, to be spent on measures including native planting, fencing and scientific research. Speaking yesterday at the tiny Ngati Moki Marae near Ellesmere's edge, Environment Minister Nick Smith said the focus would be on reducing nutrients from agricultural runoff, which would require a tougher approach on rogue farmers. Some lakeside land would have to be bought, he said.
