Wairarapa weekend - check out


End of season slaloms TBC


The windsurfing component of this was postponed to April owing to the weather - so this is your chance to get on-board (pun intended)

The Wellington Ocean Water Sports Programme is holding an open day. For only a gold coin donation you can have a go at sailing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, waka ama, surf paddle boarding or windsurfing. All equipment and safety gear is provided and no experience is necessary. You only need to bring warm casual clothing that can get wet.


Again we have been left wanting for wind. The weather forecast for this weekend is not likely to produce enough wind for the Harbour Blast and the direction is also poor very for that side of the Harbour. This is the second time this season we have tried to run this event and this time we are cancelling till next season. We were just unlucky.

Thanks for all your support and hard work towards making this event happen! Hope you all have a good weekend in the sun, looks like it will continue into next week too!


Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club (RPNYC) Sailing Academy, Wild Winds and the WWA are combining forces to promote windsurfing in Wellington. They are offering windsurfing courses designed to take you from first principles and get you going out on the harbour in no time at all! Looks like a years free membership of WWA is included.

Lessons will run from Motukaraka Point (Pauatahanui Inlet) and have a go and open days will be here at Oriental Bay (Wellington City)


You are required to be a member of an affiliated club to take part in WNZ sanctioned events - this is a requirement of the insurance cover WNZ provides to clubs. Events may also require you to have a sail number.

Wellington Harbour Festival ready to go!

Planning is well advanced for the Wellington Harbour Festival, six weeks of Ocean Water Sports action on Wellington Harbour this summer.

“This is the second year of the Wellington Harbour Festival which includes a diverse range of water sports,” said Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown.

“This event showcases our stunning harbour and encourages people of all ages and abilities to get wet in or on the water, as well as watching world class races.”
