Womens Windsports Weekend

Sat 16 Feb 2013 - Sun 17 Feb 2013
Lake Clearwater

The annual Womens Windsports Weekend at Lake Clearwater is on 16-17 February, a wee bit earlier this year so hopefully it will be a bit warmer too. Please come along prepared to sail plus in the unlikely (!) event of no wind - bring bikes, SUPs, jokes, stories, food, booze etc.

There is nothing formal planned for the weekend except have loads of fun. If anyone is bringing newbies along don't forget the club has learner windsurf boards for use. Please let me know it these will be needed as we will need to arrange to transport them up to Clearwater.

South Island Cup Round 1 report from Paul Vliestra

S.I. Cup Round 1 in Chch, Saturday 24th, 5 races for the Open Men and 5 races for the Open Women and Juniors together. Racing on the estuary, was fun with Chris Dimock and Terry Beentjies having some tight racing, My mast broke just before the 1st race so had to use my 6.3m instead of my 7.0m but was great fun and tiring after 5 races of pumping like crazy. Annie Crombie used a 7.2m sail all day and Tom McGregor a 7.8m everyone else was on 7.0's or less.

Well, spring appears to have arrived early which is great. Hopefully that means the wind will arrive early too. We hope you got through the winter unscathed and looking forward to a new season. We should have the new events calendar out soon, so watch out for this, you will also be able to view it on our website as well.

Annual General Meeting

03/09/2013

Our Annual General Meeting is being held in September and we need either a new treasurer or a new president as I have been full filling both roles last season, but cannot do justice to both, so I am standing down from both roles and standing for either the Treasurer or President, but not both. My preferred role would be Treasurer, so please stand up and be counted as we need you to guide our organisation with the help of your new committee.

22/05/2013

Its that time of the year again when we ask you to pay your affiliation fee and start thinking about next season. This modest fee helps pay for the event insurance we offer clubs, our membership fees with ISAF, and the costs of advocacy and promotion of the sport.

Well the wind may not have blown much.. but that didn't stop the women who attended the annual womens camp at Clearwater, near Christchurch from having fun.

On Friday night a couple of the early arrivals ventured out on their long boards and had a relaxing unwind from the trip. Then on Saturday
we were met by a hot calm day... plenty of time for catch ups.
