Wellington Windsurfing Association

Craigs Investment Partners Eastbourne Slalom + 2015

Sat 5 Dec 2015 - Sun 6 Dec 2015
Eastbourne, Wellington

This event is for everyone who can confidently sail a windsurfer. Races will be organised according to ability, all entries go in the draw for cool prizes, and there’s no pressure to compete - it’s social, all about participation, it’s about sailing better. Given that, there will also be some serious competition and that will be worth watching! There will also be some pretty cool gear to look at and maybe try, including some very new kit! This is also one round of the 2015/2016 North Island Cup.

Help us shape the future of Whitireia Park

Over the next couple of months we are asking for comments that will help us to develop a new management plan for Whitireia Park.

Located in the Porirua Basin, Whitireia Park is a prominent headland with amazing views for those who walk, bike, rock climb, play golf take a picnic, swim at the Park or even live nearby. It is similar to other regional parks in that it is much larger than city parks and offers adventure in an unmanicured environment. It's home to some unique plants and there are a number of restoration efforts underway. Not to mention, it has a long Maori history dating back to Kupe's canoe anchoring here and in more recent years home to Ngati Toa.
