Clean Up - Christchurch Estuary - Scott Park

Sun 22 Sep 2013
ChCh : Scott Park

CWA are having our annual “clean up the World” day at the estuary this Sunday and would really appreciate just a couple of hours of your time to help us show the community and council we don’t just leave our wake behind at the estuary, we also help keep the estuary clean.

Meet us at windsurf park, midday on Sunday to help walk the edge of the estuary around to Scott park to clear the obvious obstacles that might trip us up during the season, like a tyre or two!

CWA AGM

Wed 18 Sep 2013
Speights Ale House, Christchurch

Our Annual General Meeting is being held in September and we need either a new treasurer or a new president as I have been full filling both roles last season, but cannot do justice to both, so I am standing down from both roles and standing for either the Treasurer or President, but not both. My preferred role would be Treasurer, so please stand up and be counted as we need you to guide our organisation with the help of your new committee.

Canterbury Windsports news

Well, spring appears to have arrived early which is great. Hopefully that means the wind will arrive early too. We hope you got through the winter unscathed and looking forward to a new season. We should have the new events calendar out soon, so watch out for this, you will also be able to view it on our website as well.

2013 Womens Camp at Lake Clearwater,

Well the wind may not have blown much.. but that didn't stop the women who attended the annual womens camp at Clearwater, near Christchurch from having fun.

On Friday night a couple of the early arrivals ventured out on their long boards and had a relaxing unwind from the trip. Then on Saturday
we were met by a hot calm day... plenty of time for catch ups.

Womens Windsports Weekend

Sat 16 Feb 2013 - Sun 17 Feb 2013
Lake Clearwater

The annual Womens Windsports Weekend at Lake Clearwater is on 16-17 February, a wee bit earlier this year so hopefully it will be a bit warmer too. Please come along prepared to sail plus in the unlikely (!) event of no wind - bring bikes, SUPs, jokes, stories, food, booze etc.

There is nothing formal planned for the weekend except have loads of fun. If anyone is bringing newbies along don't forget the club has learner windsurf boards for use. Please let me know it these will be needed as we will need to arrange to transport them up to Clearwater.
