South Island Cup Report

The first round of the South Island Cup got underway on the 5th Dec' in Dunedin with a perfect sunny day. We had 18 men and 6 women enter, so the men were split into two heats so the starts weren't to dangerous!

We started out in 15-18 knots with most on 7m sails, had 2 rounds then a short break, another 2 rounds in similar conditions, at which time the tide was getting a little low so some of the marks had to be moved. The next 2 rounds the wind had increased slightly, some changed down to 6.4/5.9m sails and smaller boards.

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.

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 !

Although it is claimed that only 0.02% of the New Zealand coastline is taken for sea farms, as can be seen from the map, this area overlays some of New Zealand's finest cruising grounds and the grab of sea space proposed by the group will be a quadrupling of the size of sea farms in these cruising grounds and sheltered bays.
