A windsurfing club is a great way to get into windsurfing. Your local windsurfing club will will introduce you into your local windsurfing community. A solo sport like windsurfing can make it hard to get advice on where to sail, what to buy and what to do. By joining a club you'll get all these things an so much more. BBQs, film evenings, instruction days, trips away, competitions, friends and sailing partners.

Windsurfing New Zealand instructors courses are a great way to - give others a great start to windsurfing, get holiday work while travelling, help improve your own basic technique. The next course is scheduled for the end of January in Queenstown.

It was a windy February with the Southerly a Westerly flows over Queenstown bringing some great conditions to have a blast in. Every sailing spot on the lake has filled with some solid winds 15 + knots with Jardines producing some of the strongest winds so far this season. Frankton Beach has been on a few days when the Southerly hitting Jardines was too strong.

Just giving you some advance notice of an event which will be happening on Lake Hawea 30.Nov/1.Dec. Organised by the Hotel and some local kiters and supported by the club. It will focus around camping and sailing together, with a good night out at the hotel on the Saturday. There may be a ‘downwinder’ and/or some form of freestyle fun competition too, though the exact format is yet to be finalised. (Sorry those of you doing windsurf South Island Cup but we'll always clash with something and it is the windy time there). Contact. Yohann 02108435786.

Hi all,

Hope you're getting out on the water.. or at least dusting off the gear ready. These consistent North Westerlies are making Glenorchy, Hawea and Wanaka popular places to sail, at the weekends especially and I hear there are a few getting out at Frankton too. Good on you . The waters pretty good (except immediately after new rain), though the shorelines are rather reduced with little rigging area at some spots.

We had our AGM last week and for those who couldn't make it the notes are attached, do please read ! Lots of fun things planned.

Important issues;
