Southern Lakes Wind Riders Club

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.

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.

Southern Lakes Windriders news

We had a great Open Day last week. Thanks for all the club helpers. We signed up 12 new members and introduced a whole heap of new people to the sport.. and were then rewarded with a very windy day at Glenorchy the next day for all the volunteers to have their fun.

This weekend. South Coast.
Forecast looking good at this stage for Sat and possibly Sun. Gavin is keen to help people out who maybe haven't been in the waves before. The hotel/backpackers at Colac Bay is a cheap friendly local place to stay. Anyone interested ring Gavin 021994139.

Glenorchy Fun Weekend. 6/7th December.

We'd love as many club members as possible to come along and help encourage new people into the sports. we'll have some baby and training kites there along with lots of windsurf gear to give people a go. We need helpers for windsurf instruction, kite flying help, saussie cooks for the BBQ and general smiley faces to tell newbies about the sports or about the club and where to sail.
