Well the wind may not have blown much.. but that didn't stop the women who attended the annual womens camp at Clearwater, near Christchurch from having fun.

On Friday night a couple of the early arrivals ventured out on their long boards and had a relaxing unwind from the trip. Then on Saturday
we were met by a hot calm day... plenty of time for catch ups.

The National Slalom competition in Dunedin last week was an unqualified success, with around 50 competitors, close racing and good media coverage including TV ensuring high visibility. Well done to the organisers and all the competitors for making it so great! Coverage on TV3 was unprecedented for windsurfing over recent years, and the local press gave good coverage:

S.I. Cup Round 1 in Chch, Saturday 24th, 5 races for the Open Men and 5 races for the Open Women and Juniors together. Racing on the estuary, was fun with Chris Dimock and Terry Beentjies having some tight racing, My mast broke just before the 1st race so had to use my 6.3m instead of my 7.0m but was great fun and tiring after 5 races of pumping like crazy. Annie Crombie used a 7.2m sail all day and Tom McGregor a 7.8m everyone else was on 7.0's or less.
