Big Glenorchy Fun Weekend, 18-19 February - more details

18-19 February. Please find attached a leaflet about the fun weekend coming up, do make an effort to come along, it should be great to get together and we're trying to put on lots of activities to keep you entertained and hopefully to give you some of you a chance to try something new, buy something new (or old), or to learn something new. Please tell your friends and print off the leaflet and put it up wherever you can. We do want this to happen at Glenorchy, so if there isn't a NW due it will probably get postponed to the following weekend. So keep in touch.

CWA Christmas news

Earthquakes, snowstorms, and now flooding - 2011 has been memorable for all the wrong reasons (well, snowkiting on the beach was pretty cool), so here's wishing for a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.

The Beginners Windsurf School scheduled for this weekend 17 December has been cancelled due to today's heavy rainfall and the need to avoid the estuary for 48 hours due to stormwater runoff. This is the normal advice from Christchurch City Counil and District Health Board, and is even more important post earthquake.

CWA - Lyttelton Intro Day

Sun 11 Dec 2011
Lyttelton

Following our successful Lyttelton Discovery Day the CWA would like to back this up with our Lyttelton Intro Day on Sunday December 11. Meet at the launch ramp from 12 pm. An easterly is forecast so conditions should be ideal. A briefing will be held for new sailors to the harbour and we will endeavour to pair up experienced sailors with new sailors for advice and support. Great to see as many windsurfers and kiteboarders there as possible to support another great CWA event. http://www.cwa.org.nz/portal/index.php?option=com_redevent&view=eventlis...
