Life's a breeze - windsurf into summer

The winds are stronger, the days are longer so its time to get that windsurfer thats been lurking in your garage out. Check everything is still working and safe, and get back onto the water.

Starting with the Taranaki Wavesailing Classic, one of New Zealands biggest and most social event on the windsurfing calendar, this week will feature a number of activities around the country to mark the start of the 'windsurfing season'.

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).

FYI: Quake Update - WARNING on Water Quality in Christchurch

The CWA understands that signs warning against swimming (includes any water contact sports) are up at the Estuary and beaches due to sewage contamination in the Avon, Heathcote, and Waimakiriri rivers (Lake Ellesmere is contaminated too). This state of affairs could continue for a period of weeks or even months, so please stay safe out there.

Canterbury Windsports Assn. September Update

Faecal contamination (raw sewage) warning in the Avon and Heathcote rivers and Estuary due to earthquake damage, Clean Up day postponed, Yoda Challenge, Club nite (includes Wanaka video), Freestyle clinics, and access issues...

Scott Park Launch Area ACCESS

Work, expected to take two years (pre-earthquake Sept 2010), has started on the Ferrymead Bridge, with contractor site access signs going up at the northern entrance to Scott Park, just below the bridge in the MPYC/MPBC car park. City Council Project Leader Peter Rivers says that the contractor requires access along the paper road beside the estuary to their site from the Northern entrance. So long as windsurfers do not block that access, they can continue to park and rig up at Scott park, although this doesn't preclude the contractor from restricting access at other times, but lets hope this is during the week.

Windsurfing and kiting social get-together. Repeat of last years great event. Simple across the lake and back race series for Windsurfers and Kiters. Think about this as an option for Xmas/New Year, there's always lots of windsurfers and kiters camping there. Very social.
