Had my first post winter water session after work tonight - at the beach of course. As for the estuary, the news suggests the southern part of the estuary (i.e. the Humphreys Drive windsurf area) is back to normal levels (i.e. very poor - avoid swimming.

NEW COURSE! This is a new course covering coaching for introduction to short board skills, beach starts, harness, footstraps, waterstarts and gybes. The course which is based on the RYA Fast Forward key principles is a great update and progression course for existing instructors wanting to revalidate. If there are spare spaces we may take people who are not already basic instructors, this will improve your own skills as well as teaching you good progressions for developing windsurfers (though you will not receive official certification unless you’ve also done the basic instructors course).

The subject says it all - continuing high levels of contamination in the Estuary from broken and leaking sewage pipes up the Avon and Heathcote rivers mean we've had to cancel the second CWA event of the season - the first Yoda kiteboard event.

BASIC INSTRUCTOR.
Master Instructor, Sue Bradley
Cost:$350

The CWA understands that signs warning against swimming (includes any water contact sports) are up at the Estuary and beaches due to sewage contamination in the Avon, Heathcote, and Waimakiriri rivers (Lake Ellesmere is contaminated too). This state of affairs could continue for a period of weeks or even months, so please stay safe out there.

Faecal contamination (raw sewage) warning in the Avon and Heathcote rivers and Estuary due to earthquake damage, Clean Up day postponed, Yoda Challenge, Club nite (includes Wanaka video), Freestyle clinics, and access issues...

Work, expected to take two years (pre-earthquake Sept 2010), has started on the Ferrymead Bridge, with contractor site access signs going up at the northern entrance to Scott Park, just below the bridge in the MPYC/MPBC car park. City Council Project Leader Peter Rivers says that the contractor requires access along the paper road beside the estuary to their site from the Northern entrance. So long as windsurfers do not block that access, they can continue to park and rig up at Scott park, although this doesn't preclude the contractor from restricting access at other times, but lets hope this is during the week.
