Wakatere Windsurfing Success

What a fantastic turnout at the RS:X and Techno Nationals at Manly last season.

Congratulations to Harrison Hill for taking 3rd overall youth male.

There were 22 RS:Xs including Olympic Gold Medallist Dorian and his DEMZBOYZ team mates with their coach Aaron MacKintosh and our very own JP Tobin. There were also 13 Technos in the Open fleet and about 16 Green fleeters. We had competitors from Holland, Italy, Korea, Australia and New Caledonia. 

Windsurfing National Champs

Trust everyone is enjoying the summer and has settled into routines.

The windsurfing scene has been busy with Techno and RS:X competitors racing in the Junior and Senior Sail Auckland . This year's standard was excellent, check out the associated posts on our Facebook page

Next week Friday 14th Feb - Sunday 16th Feb we are all heading to Manly Sailing Club at Whangaparaoa who are hosting the 2014 RS:X & Techno 293 Windsurfing National Champs and Bic Techno Oceanic Champs.

I'll be running the Green fleet on the Sat / Sun and my focus is to get as many of you new sailors around the marks as possible. It will be very low key including a harbour race so let's get out on the water.

This event will be one of the biggest gatherings of windsurfers for a long time including overseas competitors from Korea, New Caledonia, Australia as well as the current gold medalists and his training friends.

Find the NOR & Entry Form on the Manly HOME page - http://www.manlysailingclub.org.nz/ and keep an eye on the Association Facebook page for more updates during the week
