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.
