Windsurf New Zealand Sail Numbers
If you have a sail number for racing or want to acquire one then under new rules you have to be a financial member of Windsurf New Zealand or an affiliated club. The CWA has been asked to supply WNZ a list of members so that they can see who is a paid member and has rights to a sail number. If this affects you then read on...

After 3 frustrating days of waiting for wind the 2016 nationals are over.
Thursday and Friday offered up the minimum required to squeeze through 7 rounds of racing.
Saturday was supposed to bring the big winds, unfortunately the wind was a no show.
So in the end, on Thursday there were 5 rounds for the Gold fleet, Youth/Junior/Womens & 2 rounds for the Silver. On Friday managed another 2 rounds for all Fleets.
That allowed a result for the event & winners were found for all the fleets.
The Fleets were :

2 Gold Fleets
1 Youth / Junior / Womens
1 Silver

Gold Fleet Winners.
