Canterbury Windsports Assn news

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.

INAUGURAL AVIEMORE SUMMER BASH HUGE SUCCESS !

The first Aviemore Challenge Trophy event held at Lake Aviemore, South Island from 1-3 Jan 2010 was dubbed a great event by all those who took part as well as the organisers and their team. In all 19 windsurfers entered, slightly less than expected, but for a first event all were happy. Everyone took home a cool tee shirt as well as a dental pack, there were trophies to keep for each of the main classes, a very special silver plate as the main Challenge Trophy and  lots of spot prizes too. The social side of the event which is primarily organised around a lovely traditional camping/sailing spot was helped by sponsorship beer which added that special bonus to 'after sailing' stories !
