2009 Auckland Freestyle Champs event report

As in the previous year the 2009 Auckland Freestyle Champs was run again on stand by to get the best conditions possible so the stand by period was set for the whole month of May with each Saturday and Sunday being a possible event day.

The weather systems during that time of the year are normally a bit windier and consistent - but what is normal in these days anyway? The first weekend in May had a terrific forecast, 30+ Knots for 4-5 days in a row but it became quickly apparent that the direction was SE, which is the most unreliable of all for the Auckland area. After a bit of gambling the decision was made to postpone the event to the following weekend. As it turned out the wind never arrived for the first weekend – luckily!

The Auckland Windsurfing Association inaugural meeting

The Auckland Windsurfing Association is now ready to be officially formed.
The aim is to incorporate the Association. Incorporation means that the Association’s property (money, rescue boat? website, buoys, trophies etc) will in future be held by the Association instead of by the members for the time being. The Association can also then enter contracts and open a bank account. The members will only have to pay their subscriptions and can not become liable for any debts or liability the Association may incur.

Detailed graphical 48 hour wind forecasts from MetService for main recreational marine areas

MetService have closed their enhanced MyWeather services on the public website, however in the interim they have created a public login to their business site www.metconnect.co.nz (Login myweatherplus/weather4u). Most of the information is not new, but the Animated Wind Model shows 3 hourly wind forecasts for the Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch recreational marine areas for the next 48 hours. http://www.metservice.com/default/index.php?alias=mwp_notice

ARC Navigation Safety Bylaw

It looks like we may need the assistance of the Association in objecting to a recent bylaw passed by the Auckland Regional Council, I believe that this bylaw has been significantly influenced by incidents with kite surfers at many Auckland beaches over the past few years. Essentially the ARC and harbour master are sectioning off some of our most popular beaches whereby to restrict areas where you are able to windsurf and kite surf.
