Predictions of a late winter have been dispelled, and I've already been on two snow kite missions! No matter that on each trip at least one of the key ingredients was missing (first snow, then wind), but the second trip to Tekapo over Queen's Birthday (picture below), was pretty awesome.

Finally, the NZ summer has delivered some sea breeze action! A bit late for the Canterbury Kite Champs held in southerly winds over the weekend of Jan 23-24 at Lakeside Domain Lake Ellesemere - but there was plenty of action there too. I can't say more because I've been in sunny hot Brisbane, enjoying warm water and light sea breezes, while evading sharks, bluebottles, and horse flies. Enough said.

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.

Windsurfing and kiting social get-together. Repeat of last years great event. Simple across the lake and back race series for Windsurfers and Kiters. Think about this as an option for Xmas/New Year, there's always lots of windsurfers and kiters camping there. Very social.

In 2010, the Clean Up the World theme is “Communities caring for nature”. Participating groups will undertake activities such as protecting water sources, planting trees, reducing waste, education and awareness raising.

Clean Up the World partners with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to inspire and empower communities to "clean up, fix up and conserve their environment" by carrying out initiatives ranging from waste removal and tree planting to water and energy conservation projects.

Clean up the World event, which was scheduled for Sept 5, as we were about two weeks ahead of the Rest of the World, and the council. It's officially Sept 18-19, so we'll aim for that weekend too, maybe Saturday, or if wet and miserable then Sunday. To be confirmed in the online events calendar. http://www.cwa.org.nz/portal/index.php?option=com_redevent&view=eventlis...
