Aviemore - Many windsurfers and kiters from the Queenstown lakes area, Dunedin and Christchurch got some excellent sailing in over the New Year period with some NE’s and the informal race across the lake and back! Great camping, socialising and sailing at the Waitangi side to the right of the boat harbour if you are facing the lake. Will be a great place to go during Feb.

See you on the water
