Flying the Flag:

Your committee has also been busy representing our cause on two fronts: Lyttelton Harbour/Naval Point, where a $5 toll gate to the boat ramp has blocked free access to the windsurf ramp put in by CWA members back in the late 1980's; and the Estuary Kite Launch area where, despite the poor season, we're pushing for expansion to accommodate the increasing numbers of kiters and overflow from the 'overflow' car park. These things take ongoing vigilance, time, and effort to come to fruition, and would be less likely to happen without the CWA.

Thanks for your support,
