Canterbury Windsurf Champs – this weekend

The annual Windsurf champs are this weekend and will be held at Lyttleton harbour as the tides are no good on the Estuary. Below is the link to the notice of race and the entry form, if you would please bring this along on Saturday for the skippers meeting at midday in our Gazebo at the rigging area.

Windsurf Beginners day – Saturday 22 February, 10 am, Scott Park

Drop in Wave #3 – South Brighton Domain week 4 of February 6 pm

Please contact Cookie to find out more details

Estuary Festival – McCormacks Bay park – 1 March 2 pm – 9 pm

We would like to see everyone turn out for this, if possible, in conjunction with other watercraft, we have volunteered to join the armada of vessels to run along the causeway by the park in front of spectators from 4:30 pm for an hour depending on the wind for us. Would be a great spectacle to see kites flying if you launched from sandy point and came across, windsurfers try and do the best you can. If there is no wind, then those with standup paddle boards could turn up with those instead please.

We will also have our Gazebo there with Groundswell’s windsurf simulator and hopefully someone’s old kite inflated on site, if you can help man the tent would be great, please get in touch with me via
