1983 was the year that the Taranaki Wave Classic was born, in it’s first guise as the Sirocco Expression Session. Biggie Smithers, along with his board brand Sirocco, ran the first wave sailing contest in Taranaki. It was designed to maximise time on the water for all competitors – this format proved an instant success with 60-70 sailors participating.

Taranaki Wave Classic 2016 went off! Hosted by Carbon Art Windsurf Boards, the 2016 event delivered fantastic conditions for both official competition and the ‘unofficial’ practice day on Friday. Pungarehu – the spiritual home of New Zealand wavesailing – came to the party early on the Friday with the traditional south-easterly arriving by late morning. Early bird locals were there and on it well before lunchtime, as well as the visitors appearing from all around the country; eager to get some practice in.

The 2015 Wavesailing Nationals were held down at Taranaki over the weekend. The forecast was a little sketchy so everyone was stoked to be greeted at Kina Road by blue skies, a bit of wind and some clean sets rolling down the point. With 5/6 people in each heat, light wind on the inside and long lulls between sets, getting two decent waves in 15 minutes was the challenge.

It's on again - the 2015 New Zealand Wavesailing Nationals. This is a WNZ sanctioned event governed by ISAF Windsurfing Competition Rules, the PWA 2006 rule book part 3 wave performance rules, the notice of race, these sailing instructions and the race committee. Notice of Race (NOR) and sailing instructions can be downloaded from here (click through).

It's normal practice to hold the WNZ AGM at the Nationals as this is the one time when most of those active in the organisation are able to get together. The actual date, time and place are to be confirmed - the practical approach over the last few years is to hold the AGM during down time (which does occur) during the event, i.e. while waiting for wind ... so anyone planning to attend who will not actually be at the event needs to be aware of this and make sure we have your contact details.
