Conditions were ideal on Otago Harbour for the first day of the national slalom windsurfing championships yesterday.

With the northeasterly blowing up to 25 knots, and the harbour slightly choppy, competitors had no problems finding wind and air. Competitors raced in 10 heats yesterday, and heats will continue until Sunday, when winners will be found.

Dunedin's Gareth Wood impressed among the men yesterday, while in the women's grade, Annie Crombie, of Christchurch and Sue Bradley, of Queenstown, are fighting it out for the top position.

Wind has been in abundant supply in Dunedin this summer and competitors in this week's national windsurfing slalom championships will be hoping it stays around for a while yet.

The first Aviemore Challenge Trophy event held at Lake Aviemore, South Island from 1-3 Jan 2010 was dubbed a great event by all those who took part as well as the organisers and their team. In all 19 windsurfers entered, slightly less than expected, but for a first event all were happy. Everyone took home a cool tee shirt as well as a dental pack, there were trophies to keep for each of the main classes, a very special silver plate as the main Challenge Trophy and  lots of spot prizes too. The social side of the event which is primarily organised around a lovely traditional camping/sailing spot was helped by sponsorship beer which added that special bonus to 'after sailing' stories !

The first round of the South Island Cup got underway on the 5th Dec' in Dunedin with a perfect sunny day. We had 18 men and 6 women enter, so the men were split into two heats so the starts weren't to dangerous!

We started out in 15-18 knots with most on 7m sails, had 2 rounds then a short break, another 2 rounds in similar conditions, at which time the tide was getting a little low so some of the marks had to be moved. The next 2 rounds the wind had increased slightly, some changed down to 6.4/5.9m sails and smaller boards.
