Life's a breeze - windsurf into summer

Sat 22 Oct 2011 - Sun 30 Oct 2011
New Zealand wide

The winds are stronger, the days are longer so its time to get that windsurfer thats been lurking in your garage out. Check everything is still working and safe, and get back onto the water.

Starting with the Taranaki Wavesailing Classic, one of New Zealands biggest and most social event on the windsurfing calendar, this week will feature a number of activities around the country to mark the start of the 'windsurfing season'.

Wellington - Take the plunge for charity this winter with the 2011 Polar Plunge.

A chilly dip in the Wellington Harbour is the best way to celebrate the cooler months. The forecast is for sunshine on Saturday but the event is on rain, hail or shine!

"Most sites only exceed guidelines after heavy rain as it washes contaminants from agricultural and urban areas into our waterways," says Greater Wellington Senior Environmental Scientist Summer Warr.

WWA Harbour Blast Sunday 17 April 2011 has been cancelled

The harbour blast is cancelled.It doesn't look like the wind is going to cooperate today. But a few of the guys are going to Eastbourne for a freesailing session at 1-2 o'clock in case the Southerly does arrive.

... On coming 'round the corner we were greeted by a very clean barrelling right hander on a reef just off the local Golf course. It was barrelling top to bottom for a couple of hundred metres off the fourth tee. The first things that popped into my head were "holy crap" quickly followed by "is it sailable?"...
