National Championships - J P Tobin reports

Result : 2nd. Great conditions for day one of the 2010 National's if you wanted to go fishing!!!...fortunately the Dutch team were organised enough to kit their coach boat out with a couple of lines so fishing it was, despite the complete lack of breeze one race was completed (3rd) and one fish was caught...and released.

Winners decided at Singapore Airlines Sail Auckland

With over 150 competitors from 15 different countries it has been a fantastic regatta with a lot of camaraderie and superb sailing! Tom Ashley, J P Tobin and Kate Ellingham feature in results for the RS:X classes.

RS:X / Techno News

Olliver GunmanThursday 4th December brought together some of NZ best sailors to promote windsurfing as a sport and to officially launch the six new Techno boards destined for Tauranga. They are courtesy of the Bay of Plenty Sailing Academy and funded by TECT. At $5800 apiece fully kitted out, the boards aren't cheap but spokesman Stuart Pedersen is adamant they'll be a great investment for the sport's future. "Getting these boards is huge - they'll provide a pathway from learning to windsurf through to getting into serious racing without having to commit to buying your own gear," Pedersen said.
