Sorry to say that the forecast has changed again and its now looking like quite light south west most of the weekend which won't work up there.
We still want this to happen but due to organisers commitments it won't be next weekend for sure.. so keep your eye out for your emails later in March.
Please pass this message on..
All the best,
Sue .
ps. Some people are heading down to the South Coast now this weekend, looks a much better forecast for down there.

You are required to be a member of an affiliated club to take part in WNZ sanctioned events - this is a requirement of the insurance cover WNZ provides to clubs. Events may also require you to have a sail number.

unfortunately the Glenorchy Event this weekend is being postponed to the following weekend 25th and 26th of Feb due to weather conditions. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. However the following weekend is still going to be epic so pack your gear and we will see you there :)

18-19 February. Please find attached a leaflet about the fun weekend coming up, do make an effort to come along, it should be great to get together and we're trying to put on lots of activities to keep you entertained and hopefully to give you some of you a chance to try something new, buy something new (or old), or to learn something new. Please tell your friends and print off the leaflet and put it up wherever you can. We do want this to happen at Glenorchy, so if there isn't a NW due it will probably get postponed to the following weekend. So keep in touch.
