Lake Ferry Social Weekend

Spring is here - hope you are enjoying some water time!
Reminder that this weekend is the Lake Ferry Social Weekend - details below. Looking forward to seeing a big group there :-)
Just remember Lake Ferry is impacted by the tide - make sure you are sailing on an incoming tide. Always sail with a mate - and if you have never sailed there before, make sure you chat with someone who has first.
Best sailing will be from about 1.30pm/2pm onwards on Saturday and an hour later on Sunday so you can enjoy a sleep in, go surfing, biking, hiking or whatever in the morning. Low tide is at 11.20am Saturday and an 12.17pm on Sunday. You should leave it a couple of hours after low tide before sailing.
Thanks to Ian Lovegrove for the (ex) local advice!
Cheers, WWA Committee

Lake Ferry weekend away confirmed for 4-5 November. Social event on the Saturday night - I will just need to confirm numbers the week before to finalise the dinner booking, so either register for the event on Facebook or email if you are coming.

Make your own accomodation arrangements - plenty of options: rent a house, camp or cabin in the campground, or the hotel itself.

Bring all your toys: windsurf gear, surboards, SUPs, mountain bikes etc. Kitesurfers welcome too! Heaps of options in the Wairarapa. Lake Ferry is a great slalom, freestyle and intermediate sailing location in southerly or northerly winds. It is fine for learners - just make sure you are in touch with someone first who is familiar with the local conditions. I recommend booties as a bit rocky underfoot where you launch from. Plenty of surf breaks around the Cape Palliser coast for windsurfing, surfing or SUPing.
