Eastbourne once again turned it on for the windsurfers, with winds from 25 to 30 knots for most of the day allowing 13 races to be completed.
Conditions were fast and demanding with plenty of spills and some close finishes for the 22 sailors who turned up to sample the windiest city in the world.

This event is for everyone who can confidently sail a windsurfer. Races will be organised according to ability, all entries go in the draw for cool prizes, and there’s no pressure to compete - it’s social, all about participation, it’s about sailing better. Given that, there will also be some serious competition and that will be worth watching! There will also be some pretty cool gear to look at and maybe try, including some very new kit! This is also one round of the 2015/2016 North Island Cup.

If you sail in the Wellington Region at all you could add your opinion...
Everyday, people in the Wellington region use and enjoy our harbours, coasts and rivers in a variety of different ways.
Greater Wellington Regional Council and local councils monitor and report on the quality of the water at popular beaches and river swimming spots so you know if there are any health risks present.

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.

This season there will be a North Island Cup (slalom) awarded to the best result from 3 events:
- Tauranga Spring Windsurf Fun Slalom 20/21 September
- Wellington Slalom Plus 29/30 November
- Auckland Slalom Series (1 selected round)
Results will be based on the individuals best results from 2 of the 3 events (i.e. Auckland/Tauranga or Tauranga/Wellington) - this should mean you are in with a chance if you only enter 2 of the 3 events
