2016 Groundswell New Zealand Windsurf Slalom Nationals results

After 3 frustrating days of waiting for wind the 2016 nationals are over.
Thursday and Friday offered up the minimum required to squeeze through 7 rounds of racing.
Saturday was supposed to bring the big winds, unfortunately the wind was a no show.
So in the end, on Thursday there were 5 rounds for the Gold fleet, Youth/Junior/Womens & 2 rounds for the Silver. On Friday managed another 2 rounds for all Fleets.
That allowed a result for the event & winners were found for all the fleets.
The Fleets were :

2 Gold Fleets
1 Youth / Junior / Womens
1 Silver

Gold Fleet Winners.

Christchurch Estuary Survey

The Christchurch City Council is currently reviewing provision for public participation in recreation and sport at the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai. As part of this process it is requested that anyone that may have done any windsport on the Estuary complete a survey to understand use of the Estuary.
The survey can be accessed via the link below:

New Zealand Windsurfing Slalom Nationals 2016

Thu 21 Jan 2016 - Sun 24 Jan 2016
Naval Point Club, Lyttleton, Christchurch

Windsurfers have achieved speeds approaching 100kph. Slalom is the fastest form of windsurfer racing, with groups of sailors competing on a downwind zig-zag course around a series of buoys and routinely reaching speeds in excess of 60 kph. Equipment is essentially unlimited, so sailors push the limits as hard as they dare. New Zealand has world ranking sailors in this discipline and some overseas competitors are also expected.

Windsurfing New Zealand AGM 2016

Fri 22 Jan 2016
Christchurch

Traditionally the Windsurfing NZ AGM is held during the Windsurfing Nationals (21-23 January), this year in Christchurch. The date and time are nominal as it has been found in previous years that the easiest way to run the AGM is to slot it in during event downtime - it is not practical to have it while racing is on, not popular or appropriate to halt racing for the meeting, and attendance is best if we schedule it while members are waiting for racing to start.
Minutes of the previous AGM, and agenda and any other material will be posted here soon, and notified on Facebook.
