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.

Join a club or start your own

A windsurfing club is a great way to get into windsurfing. Your local windsurfing club will will introduce you into your local windsurfing community. A solo sport like windsurfing can make it hard to get advice on where to sail, what to buy and what to do. By joining a club you'll get all these things an so much more. BBQs, film evenings, instruction days, trips away, competitions, friends and sailing partners.

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.
