There will be Water Ski racing in Evans Bay both days of this weekend (4/5 Oct) generally up the eastern side between Cobham Drive and Shelley Bay, launching from the Evans Bay public ramp. A Public Notice advising of the reserved area and uplifting speed bylaws was in last Saturday’s DomPost, and there are posters at various parts of the foreshore and by the windsurf take-off area at Kio Bay.
If strong northeries, they will run at Horokiwi, from the Water Ski Club and to about 2500m south.

Over the next couple of months we are asking for comments that will help us to develop a new management plan for Whitireia Park.

Located in the Porirua Basin, Whitireia Park is a prominent headland with amazing views for those who walk, bike, rock climb, play golf take a picnic, swim at the Park or even live nearby. It is similar to other regional parks in that it is much larger than city parks and offers adventure in an unmanicured environment. It's home to some unique plants and there are a number of restoration efforts underway. Not to mention, it has a long Maori history dating back to Kupe's canoe anchoring here and in more recent years home to Ngati Toa.

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.
