CWA News - November - December 2010

Clearwater @ Show Weekend, Lyttelton Harbour Ramp Access, CWA coming EVENTS ...

Clearwater @ Show Weekend:

Classic nor'west weather made for happy CWA campers at Lake Clearwater over Show Weekend. Friday and Saturday were calm & sunny in the morning, and windy and sunny in the afternoon. Sunday saw the nor'wester die away, only to be replaced by a cooler sou'west change. Three days of action in this fantastic mountain location took me five days back in the office to recover!

Lyttelton Harbour Ramp Access:

The combination padlock is now in place for use by CWA members. To find the code and access instructions login to the CWA website and look under MEMBERSHIP.

In the New Year:

17 - 24 Jan 2011: Bruce Spedding of Windsurf NZ has hired the Marahau Outdoor Ed Centre, at the entrance to Abel Tasman National Park, and invited CWA members to come stay. It sleeps ~60, and is a great place for learning, windsurfing & kiting and just about everything recreational. You can see more details and register your interest at

16 - 20 Feb 2011 Windsurf Slalom Nationals: Notice of Race and Entry form now available. See

Finally, a word of caution about beach burglars: These lowlifes don't use a key, but smash and grab, as I found out at the Marine Parade/Bellamy St car park a couple of Sundays ago. Lessons learnt: park in high visibility busy areas, and ensure your gear is covered by insurance (i.e. specified in your contents policy if necessary).
