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 !

Social sail in Wanaka, an opportunity for those of you from Queenstown to sail somewhere different, with the locals telling you the best spot for the day. Sat 23rd or Sun 24th Jan. Will let you know nearer the time which looks best.

13/01/2010

Starting Thursday 14th Jan through til the end of March. Lessons and rentals available or if you have your own gear just turn up for a social sail and a chat to other sailors. Most weeks there’s a BBQ too, though not for the first one tomorrow. Its always weather dependent. So tell your friends and family about it… get them on the water too !

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.
