The winds are stronger, the days are longer so its time to get that windsurfer thats been lurking in your garage out. Check everything is still working and safe, and get back onto the water.

Starting with the Taranaki Wavesailing Classic, one of New Zealands biggest and most social event on the windsurfing calendar, this week will feature a number of activities around the country to mark the start of the 'windsurfing season'.

Funds raised for Christchurch Windsports Community approaches $2000

The Windsurfing NZ fundraising for the Christchurch Windsports community is approaching $2000. The final amount will be presented to the CWA at the Lake Clearwater weekend event in November so there is still time to contribute.

The Speight's Ale House

These are dynamic times, and we'd like you to get involved, starting with the Annual General Meeting on September 7, at The Speight's Ale House, Ferry Road, from 7:30pm. Apart from the usual committee elections, we hope to have a presentation on the state of the estuary, plus it's a great opportunity to catch up and discuss places to sail.

18-19 February. Please find attached a leaflet about the fun weekend coming up, do make an effort to come along, it should be great to get together and we're trying to put on lots of activities to keep you entertained and hopefully to give you some of you a chance to try something new, buy something new (or old), or to learn something new. Please tell your friends and print off the leaflet and put it up wherever you can. We do want this to happen at Glenorchy, so if there isn't a NW due it will probably get postponed to the following weekend. So keep in touch.

What's in the water ? Lincoln University is undertaking a survey of recreational users of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai.
We’d like you to tell us what you think and know about water quality, and how it affects your recreational activity.
We’d appreciate your contribution to our survey. Take part in the survey (5-8 minutes)
This research has been reviewed and approved by the Lincoln University Human Ethics Committee.

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.

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...

You are invited to participate in the project by completing this electronic questionnaire.
The aim of the project is to take a snapshot of the following-
What do recreational users (e.g. wind surfers, walkers, shell fish collectors) of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai know about microbiological water pollution
What factors influence their decisions about water quality to undertake recreational activity
To what extent do recreationists utilise information provided by sources such as the regional council and recreation clubs.
As a recreational user of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai (the Estuary) over the age of 16 years, participation in this project will involve the completion of this online survey that should not take any longer than 10-15 minutes.
