Urgent: SLWC - windsurfing impact trial at Jardines today 27 March 2010

As you know there is a proposal to put a mooring buoy in the bay where we sail, for a 12m motor boat with antennae. The club exec are very worried about the safety aspects of this proposal. We have asked the applicant to put in a buoy for us to sail around so that we have given the matter our fullest consideration. They have not responded despite several requests. As the matter is likely to end up in an official "Hearing" the Exec. have decided to put in a buoy ourselves, so please try and get down to Jardines today to look at the positioning and let me know by email how you feel about this.

Annual long distance wind riders event one huge success !

39 windsurfers and kiters from all over the South Island descended on Glenorchy on Saturday 27th Feb. for the Southern Lakes Windriders Club’s annual downwinder sail from Glenorchy to Pigeon Island. They were rewarded with a stunningly sunny and warm day. It was a spectacular site at the start with an array of coloured kites and windsurfing sails that quickly dispersed at varying speeds downwind. Winds were gusting approx 25 knots with variable and at times challenging wind conditions.

INAUGURAL AVIEMORE SUMMER BASH HUGE SUCCESS !

The first Aviemore Challenge Trophy event held at Lake Aviemore, South Island from 1-3 Jan 2010 was dubbed a great event by all those who took part as well as the organisers and their team. In all 19 windsurfers entered, slightly less than expected, but for a first event all were happy. Everyone took home a cool tee shirt as well as a dental pack, there were trophies to keep for each of the main classes, a very special silver plate as the main Challenge Trophy and  lots of spot prizes too. The social side of the event which is primarily organised around a lovely traditional camping/sailing spot was helped by sponsorship beer which added that special bonus to 'after sailing' stories !
