Just a reminder that the AWA youth slalom clinic is on this Saturday at Takapuna beach. 11am start time, and we hope to finish around 2pm (with a lunch break in the middle) but it depends on the wind.

This event is for all windsurfers under the age of 18. Come and learn slalom race tricks and techniques and join in some fun racing (weather permitting). Spot prizes from the awesome Carbon Art!

Bring your own gear or hire a board/sail from Madloop Windsurfing School. (Techno, shortboard, whatever you've got will be fine.)

$10 per person, bring your own lunch.

Hope to see you there.

The forecast is looking good so the Watersports South Pacific round of the 2011/12 slalom series is on this Saturday at Pt Chev. First possible race start will be at 0930 so make sure you get there early, we're going to try and get through things quickly as the tide is low mid afternoon and we also want to give everyone time to vote in the election.

The 2011 New Zealand Freestyle Nationals were once again held in Auckland with fantastic conditions and a strong group of entries.

All the way up from Wellington came Tim Haxell, Eric Torvelainen and Robert Harrison, greeted by the local Auckland freestyle scene, sunny blue sky and a building SW breeze.

Tomorrow Sat 19 Nov at Bayswater, registration starting at 9am with first possible heat at 10am. Please note that we can only accept cash. Also we won't be allowed on the grass area with cars as we had a few issues at the last slalom event. So please unload and park up on the road! The forecast is looking really good for tomorrow, so we are trying to get a result by tomorrow afternoon with an optional expression session on Sunday. Any questions please get in touch Alexander 021 14 22 830

The Auckland Stopover team is now recruiting volunteers to work in all areas both on and off the water before, during and after the Stopover. “We have planned a fantastic Race Village, wonderful facilities for the competing crews and a great entertainment programme for the visiting public,” says Port Director Tom Mayo. “Now we are looking for volunteers to work with us to deliver something really special.”

Sail-World's camera was down at Wakatere BC on Auckland's North Shore, at Narrowneck to catch the young sailors on the water. The club is also running a entry level windsurfing program, with oversight from a few top board sailors in the area, plus coaches. Today the windsurfing group was headed off on a cruise to Rough Rock at the entrance to the inner Waitemata Harbour.

The Harbour Access Trust in association with the Takapuna Business Association and Auckland Council are currently exploring the possibility of the development of a wharf and commuter ferry service at the Northern end of Takapuna beach. The Auckland Windsurfing Association and a number of local residents have significant environmental, safety and viability concerns about any such development and believe that the re-purposing of the Takapuna Beach Holiday Park as a pre-cursor to such a move.

... with a great forecast that will line up some spectacular racing. First start is scheduled for 9.30 am tomorrow, Saturday 1st October. Venue is Farm Cove. See the map below for the location.

There is a large grass area and nice beach for launching. Wind is forecast for 20 kts plus and at farm cover it may in fact be a bit stronger. Due to the tide, we have until 1 pm to complete 16 races (8 each fleet) so hence an earlier start.
