CWA Christmas news

Earthquakes, snowstorms, and now flooding - 2011 has been memorable for all the wrong reasons (well, snowkiting on the beach was pretty cool), so here's wishing for a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.

The Beginners Windsurf School scheduled for this weekend 17 December has been cancelled due to today's heavy rainfall and the need to avoid the estuary for 48 hours due to stormwater runoff. This is the normal advice from Christchurch City Counil and District Health Board, and is even more important post earthquake.

CWA - Lyttelton Intro Day

Sun 11 Dec 2011
Lyttelton

Following our successful Lyttelton Discovery Day the CWA would like to back this up with our Lyttelton Intro Day on Sunday December 11. Meet at the launch ramp from 12 pm. An easterly is forecast so conditions should be ideal. A briefing will be held for new sailors to the harbour and we will endeavour to pair up experienced sailors with new sailors for advice and support. Great to see as many windsurfers and kiteboarders there as possible to support another great CWA event. http://www.cwa.org.nz/portal/index.php?option=com_redevent&view=eventlis...

South Island Cup Round 1 next weekend

The South Island Cup Round 1 is scheduled for weekend of 26 and 27 November in Christchurch. Even if you've never raced before get along and join in, its a great way to improve your gybes! The event will run on Lyttelton Harbour in the first instance. Naval Point Yacht Club is engaged to help set the course, lay the buoys, man the start boat and also provide a rescue craft. BBQ afterwards and an invitation to have a drink at the yacht club. (Round 2 is scheduled for weekend of 3 and 4 December in Dunedin)

Christchurch Windsurfers Earthquake fund to be presented at Clearwater Cup weekend

Windsurfing New Zealand & Dunedin Windsports Association would like to thank all those that donated their hard earned cash to the "Earthquake Affected Windsurfers" in the CWA. We are just about to withdraw and close the account so that we can present the cheque to the CWA president at the Clearwater Cup Social Weekend next weekend (11th, 12th & 13th) We would love to see as many people as at the Clearwater Weekend also as a show of support to the CWA. The Clearwater Hall has been hired for the Saturday night so it will be a great time! Love to see you there!
