New Zealand Windsurfing Slalom Nationals 2016

Thu 21 Jan 2016 - Sun 24 Jan 2016
Naval Point Club, Lyttleton, Christchurch

Windsurfers have achieved speeds approaching 100kph. Slalom is the fastest form of windsurfer racing, with groups of sailors competing on a downwind zig-zag course around a series of buoys and routinely reaching speeds in excess of 60 kph. Equipment is essentially unlimited, so sailors push the limits as hard as they dare. New Zealand has world ranking sailors in this discipline and some overseas competitors are also expected.

Windsurfing New Zealand AGM 2016

Fri 22 Jan 2016
Christchurch

Traditionally the Windsurfing NZ AGM is held during the Windsurfing Nationals (21-23 January), this year in Christchurch. The date and time are nominal as it has been found in previous years that the easiest way to run the AGM is to slot it in during event downtime - it is not practical to have it while racing is on, not popular or appropriate to halt racing for the meeting, and attendance is best if we schedule it while members are waiting for racing to start.
Minutes of the previous AGM, and agenda and any other material will be posted here soon, and notified on Facebook.

Craigs Investment Partners Eastbourne Slalom + 2015

Sat 5 Dec 2015 - Sun 6 Dec 2015
Eastbourne, Wellington

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.
