Wairarapa weekend - check out http://wwa.org.nz

Wellington Harbour Blast cancelled

Again we have been left wanting for wind. The weather forecast for this weekend is not likely to produce enough wind for the Harbour Blast and the direction is also poor very for that side of the Harbour. This is the second time this season we have tried to run this event and this time we are cancelling till next season. We were just unlucky.

Thanks for all your support and hard work towards making this event happen! Hope you all have a good weekend in the sun, looks like it will continue into next week too!

Wellington Harbour Festival

Wellington Harbour Festival ready to go!

Planning is well advanced for the Wellington Harbour Festival, six weeks of Ocean Water Sports action on Wellington Harbour this summer.

“This is the second year of the Wellington Harbour Festival which includes a diverse range of water sports,” said Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown.

“This event showcases our stunning harbour and encourages people of all ages and abilities to get wet in or on the water, as well as watching world class races.”

Wellington Freewave/Freerace next weekend

Three weeks have now past since Round 1 of the Wellington Freewave 2011 and we are looking down the barrel of Round 2 this Saturday 26 November 2011. Round 1 saw a group of dedicated sailors take to the water in Evans Bay for the freestyle round and for our first attempt to include freeracing. Conditions were light but just enough to run a race and a 30 minute expression session. http://www.wwa.org.nz/news?mode=PostView&bmi=754966
