2016 Groundswell New Zealand Windsurf Slalom Nationals results

After 3 frustrating days of waiting for wind the 2016 nationals are over.
Thursday and Friday offered up the minimum required to squeeze through 7 rounds of racing.
Saturday was supposed to bring the big winds, unfortunately the wind was a no show.
So in the end, on Thursday there were 5 rounds for the Gold fleet, Youth/Junior/Womens & 2 rounds for the Silver. On Friday managed another 2 rounds for all Fleets.
That allowed a result for the event & winners were found for all the fleets.
The Fleets were :

2 Gold Fleets
1 Youth / Junior / Womens
1 Silver

Gold Fleet Winners.

New Zealand Windsurfing Slalom Nationals 2016

Thu 21 Jan 2016 - Sun 24 Jan 2016
Naval Point Club, Lyttleton, Christchurch

Windsurfers have achieved speeds approaching 100kph. Slalom is the fastest form of windsurfer racing, with groups of sailors competing on a downwind zig-zag course around a series of buoys and routinely reaching speeds in excess of 60 kph. Equipment is essentially unlimited, so sailors push the limits as hard as they dare. New Zealand has world ranking sailors in this discipline and some overseas competitors are also expected.
