100km Westpac Rescue Challenge

Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 09:00 - Saturday, June 30, 2012 - 17:00
Wellington Harbour

Sail 100km and support the Westpac Chopper Appeal. As part of the Westpac Chopper Appeal Bruce Spedding is planning to try windsurfing 100km in a day, weather permitting sometime during May. You could too.

100km is the equivalent of crossing Cook Strait about 4.5 times (shortest distance 22km), but I won't be doing it there, I'll be doing it in my own 'back yard', Wellington Harbour, where its about the same as sailing out to Ward Island from Eastbourne and back 32 times.

or you can do this challenge yourself and raise some money for the Westpac Chopper, register your challenge here:
