CWA - help needed to run Estuary Blast

Fellow Club Kiteboard and Windsurf Members, WE NEED YOUR HELP!This new and exciting event on our calendar will be run from the Linwood Avenue car park with competitor registration from 10 am Saturday. Saturday Night we'll be at Winnie Bagoes in Ferrymead for an evening of gay repartee, and Sunday at the Ferry Speights Ale House for the prizegiving. The Club needs your help to run this event - we hope you can help with registrations, beach marshall, car parking and gate access, BBQ, first aid, WS learner and kite flying supervision.

IMPORTANT: Windsurf South Island Cup Round 1 POSTPONED

The Windsurf South Island Cup Round 1 scheduled to run in Christchurch on Saturday and Sunday November 27 and 28 2010 has been deferred until an appropriate date after the Christmas holidays.

This is due to high tide at 9am Saturday and 10 am Sunday meaning the Estuary is not a viable venue as the water will be too low by the time and if the wind comes up, and I am told there may be little interest from local competitors if we shift to Lyttelton Harbour or Lake Ellesmere. Lyttelton is also difficult to set a course.

Clearwater @ Show Weekend:

Classic nor'west weather made for happy CWA campers at Lake Clearwater over Show Weekend. Friday and Saturday were calm & sunny in the morning, and windy and sunny in the afternoon. Sunday saw the nor'wester die away, only to be replaced by a cooler sou'west change. Three days of action in this fantastic mountain location took me five days back in the office to recover!

CWA - 1st Yoda event cancelled due to quake contamination

The subject says it all - continuing high levels of contamination in the Estuary from broken and leaking sewage pipes up the Avon and Heathcote rivers mean we've had to cancel the second CWA event of the season - the first Yoda kiteboard event.

Windsurfing Instructor Training - INTERMEDIATE COACH

Sat 6 Nov 2010 - Sun 7 Nov 2010
Christchurch

NEW COURSE! This is a new course covering coaching for introduction to short board skills, beach starts, harness, footstraps, waterstarts and gybes. The course which is based on the RYA Fast Forward key principles is a great update and progression course for existing instructors wanting to revalidate. If there are spare spaces we may take people who are not already basic instructors, this will improve your own skills as well as teaching you good progressions for developing windsurfers (though you will not receive official certification unless you’ve also done the basic instructors course).
