Westpac Chopper Challenge completed

After a couple of months of indifferent weather and a couple of attempts coming up short I have finally managed to complete my 100km challenge! Feels good, and I recommend something similar to others as a way to raise funds for a charity. Look foward to me issuing some sort of challenge next year! (read on for details)

Wairarapa weekend - check out http://wwa.org.nz

Wellington Harbour Blast cancelled

Again we have been left wanting for wind. The weather forecast for this weekend is not likely to produce enough wind for the Harbour Blast and the direction is also poor very for that side of the Harbour. This is the second time this season we have tried to run this event and this time we are cancelling till next season. We were just unlucky.

Thanks for all your support and hard work towards making this event happen! Hope you all have a good weekend in the sun, looks like it will continue into next week too!
