Thank you for your support so far!
Southern Lakes Windriders Club could not exist without the support of members and volunteers like you. 2015/16 was an eventful season and we have even better things planned for you in the future. If you want to skip to the chase fill out your membership form here but you should really keep reading as SLWRC will be getting even more amazing this year!

Any kiters want to learn to windsurf ? Or any friends wanting to learn ?
I (Sue Bradley) am running an instructors course this weekend at Frankton in QT and still need some students for a free lesson for my potential instructors to practice on. Can you pass the word. First in get the places. Women and men for this one. Sat 4pm. Need to book with me first. Will just need towel and swimsuit and a positive attitude. :)

Hope you're all dusting off your gear as you pack your snow gear away. A few of us went to Glenorchy yesterday and a couple to Crighton today. Its not that cold !!!

Hope you had a good Xmas and wishing you all the best for a Happy New Year and lots of fun adventures in 2016. Hope you’ve all been getting lots of sailing in. The water at last is really warming up.. so get on out there and have some fun. Couple of winges to start I’m afraid but bear with us… that’s one of the reasons we need a club, to protect kiting and windsurfing spots in the area. Better news later in the newsletter.

One Mile Sailing.
