Laurence's PWA New Caledonia adventure #2

After two days of no wind, Noumea has certainly decided to deliver. The next four days are forecast to be the same strength as today (20+knots). It will be a huge battle where fatigue will be a huge factor. Today was an absolutely epic day! Words can't express how much I have learnt but also how much fun I had.

Elimination 1

Laurence's PWA New Caledonia adventure #1

PWA - New Caledonia

After an absolutely hectic semester at university, I finished exams on Friday (November 14th). I had a look at the forecast for the next day and a solid 30+knots was forecast. I wasn’t planning on sailing however there was the North Island Champs so I couldn't say no to a bit of competition. Thpacking.

Southern Lakes Windriders news

We had a great Open Day last week. Thanks for all the club helpers. We signed up 12 new members and introduced a whole heap of new people to the sport.. and were then rewarded with a very windy day at Glenorchy the next day for all the volunteers to have their fun.

This weekend. South Coast.
Forecast looking good at this stage for Sat and possibly Sun. Gavin is keen to help people out who maybe haven't been in the waves before. The hotel/backpackers at Colac Bay is a cheap friendly local place to stay. Anyone interested ring Gavin 021994139.

Frankton Beach (Down by the BBQ area/Toilet block).
We'd love as many club members as possible to come along and help encourage new people into the sports. we'll have some baby and training kites there along with lots of windsurf gear to give people a go. We need helpers for windsurf instruction, kite flying help, saussie cooks for the BBQ and general smiley faces to tell newbies about the sports or about the club and where to sail.
