Urgent input into IFCA AGM wanted, including possible representative and nomination.

Here is a reminder about the IFCA AGM to which we (WNZ) are entitled to send a representative to vote (Thursday 23rd July 2015 during the world championships on Sylt, Germany). membership of IFCA allows our members to compete in overseas events. We need to email the name of our representative by 22nd , to
Three (3) of the outgoing committee will certainly be up for re—election (Bruno, Eric and Ruben) – but there is room for new blood on the committee if we wish to propose someone. Alternatively , they are happy to receive by email our comments on the Agenda. Agenda and last years AGM minutes are available for download (click through). If anyone reading this would be available to represent WNZ at the meeting, or is willing to stand please contact me (Bruce Spedding) urgently ...

Carbon Art New Zealand Wave Sailing Nationals 2015 goes off!

The 2015 Wavesailing Nationals were held down at Taranaki over the weekend. The forecast was a little sketchy so everyone was stoked to be greeted at Kina Road by blue skies, a bit of wind and some clean sets rolling down the point. With 5/6 people in each heat, light wind on the inside and long lulls between sets, getting two decent waves in 15 minutes was the challenge.

Notice of Windsurfing NZ AGM and call for nominations.

Fri 6 Feb 2015

It's normal practice to hold the WNZ AGM at the Nationals as this is the one time when most of those active in the organisation are able to get together. The actual date, time and place are to be confirmed - the practical approach over the last few years is to hold the AGM during down time (which does occur) during the event, i.e. while waiting for wind ... so anyone planning to attend who will not actually be at the event needs to be aware of this and make sure we have your contact details.
