Promote your event on Windsurfing NZ

Great things happen when you list your event or send your story to Windsurfing NZ. In addition to list your event on this website we also send your event details to other web sites, and the events and stories are picked up by search engines and via RSS (syndication) feeds.

Safety concerns - sailors / kiters vs TSS Earnslaw, Lake Wakatipu

The skippers on the TSS Earnslaw have had a few incidents of late particularly with kite surfers who are getting too close to the bow of the Earnslaw as she leaves Queenstown Bay and heads out to Walter Peak (around the one mile point).

Spread the word

Windsurfing NZ acts as a feed to various other news and information web sites and organisations. Currently many of these sites do not have syndication (RSS) set up. Syndication can be used to alert you to news on your desktop or on your website without having to visit the site concerned. You will probably see an icon like this on a web site, click on this and your web browser should show you a list of news headlines and links to articles (more ).

Windsurfing development

Windsurfing NZ s working with Yachting NZ (YNZ) to create a recruitment and development pathway for windsurfing. This has been kicked off with a meeting between the two organsations in October 2009. The outcome from this meeting is described in the attached documents.

One of the outcomes of this meeting was to take advantage of the imminent arrival of 6 Techno boards for BOP by creating a publicity opportunity:
