Lake Ferry Social Weekend

Spring is here - hope you are enjoying some water time!
Reminder that this weekend is the Lake Ferry Social Weekend - details below. Looking forward to seeing a big group there :-)
Just remember Lake Ferry is impacted by the tide - make sure you are sailing on an incoming tide. Always sail with a mate - and if you have never sailed there before, make sure you chat with someone who has first.
Best sailing will be from about 1.30pm/2pm onwards on Saturday and an hour later on Sunday so you can enjoy a sleep in, go surfing, biking, hiking or whatever in the morning. Low tide is at 11.20am Saturday and an 12.17pm on Sunday. You should leave it a couple of hours after low tide before sailing.
Thanks to Ian Lovegrove for the (ex) local advice!
Cheers, WWA Committee

Lake Ferry weekend away confirmed for 4-5 November. Social event on the Saturday night - I will just need to confirm numbers the week before to finalise the dinner booking, so either register for the event on Facebook or email admin@wwa.org.nz if you are coming.

Make your own accomodation arrangements - plenty of options: rent a house, camp or cabin in the campground, or the hotel itself.

Bring all your toys: windsurf gear, surboards, SUPs, mountain bikes etc. Kitesurfers welcome too! Heaps of options in the Wairarapa. Lake Ferry is a great slalom, freestyle and intermediate sailing location in southerly or northerly winds. It is fine for learners - just make sure you are in touch with someone first who is familiar with the local conditions. I recommend booties as a bit rocky underfoot where you launch from. Plenty of surf breaks around the Cape Palliser coast for windsurfing, surfing or SUPing.
