Its that time of the year again when we ask you to pay your affiliation fee and start thinking about next season. This modest fee helps pay for the event insurance we offer clubs, our membership fees with ISAF, and the costs of advocacy and promotion of the sport.

The Wellington Windsurfing Association (WWA) staged its final summer event in Eastbourne recently when riders revelled and raced in winds ranging from 28 to 38 knots. Slalom racing is the ‘Formula 1’ of windsurfing, with equipment and courses set to achieve maximum speeds, usually in a down wind zig-zag course and speeds up to 70 km per hour.

Time for the annual Wairarapa Weekend coming up on 20-21 April. From mid-morning Saturday we'll be based at Lake Ferry - a great freeride, speed and freestyle spot, plus there are the numerous Cape Palliser breaks for wavesailing surf & SUP nearby too.
If you are keen, please book your own accommodation at the Lake Ferry Hotel, or at the camping ground. We'll have a few drinks and a meal at the Hotel on Saturday night so hope you can join us for that, it should be good fun.

Cheers
WWA Committee
