Southern Lakes Windriders news December 2015

Hope you had a good Xmas and wishing you all the best for a Happy New Year and lots of fun adventures in 2016. Hope you’ve all been getting lots of sailing in. The water at last is really warming up.. so get on out there and have some fun. Couple of winges to start I’m afraid but bear with us… that’s one of the reasons we need a club, to protect kiting and windsurfing spots in the area. Better news later in the newsletter.

One Mile Sailing.

SOUTHERN LAKES WIND RIDERS NEWS. Nov. 2015.
Wow what an amazingly windy start to the season ! A group of us have been windsurfing at Rat Point many days a week and I hear some kiters have been going to Crighton, there’s certainly lots of wind around and with El Nino forecast for the summer it looks like a good season is in store.

Glenorchy Fun Weekend coming soon. 5/6th Dec.
