Held at the Manly Sailing Club on the 28-29th March is looking like a really cool event.
Remember, we have moved the Kendall Cup regatta from Wakatere 21-22 March to Manly for this event and racing is to be combined with the Raceboard and Formula Nationals.
The RS:X and Techno will be sailing in a combined fleet with the Raceboards and can either enter just the Kendall cup for $50.00 entry or the Kendall cup and the Raceboard Nationals for $100 Entry. If you enter both, your score will be included in the season series results for the Kendall Cup and because both the RS:X and Techno fit into the Raceboard class rules you can also compete for the age division titles in the Raceboard Nationals.
It will be a great weekend with sailors from all around the country looking at coming up – let’s hope for a good breeze.
See you there.

March 23 – 24 will see Wakatere hosting the RS:X NZ Youth Selection Trials and Techno 293 competing in the 6th and final race series of the Kendall Cup. The event will kick off on Saturday and on Sunday will run in combination with the Wakatere Club Champs Day 1. Windsurfing will run on a separate course for this day. Enter online at the WBC Bookings site NOR attached.
Please be aware that the club has hired out the hall for a wedding on Saturday night. Setup for this will happen during the day. Regatta management will utilise the facilities downstairs. We will have full access to the club for the final day of racing and formalities on Sunday.
Usually we would hold the traditional BBQ on Saturday, but as the function will utilise the club kitchen I’d suggest a meal at “The Platter” next to the “Masonic”
http://www.plattercafe.co.nz/ to celebrate the work and commitment by all, maintaining growth within the Techno and RS:X class over the last 2 seasons.

The BIC TECHNO T293
The place to start – the beginners’ windsurfing class is known as the Techno class. The board, sail and rig used is common throughout the world
A simple analogy would be to see the Techno as the “Optimist” of the windsurfing classes:
one design sail
one design rigs
feeder to all international windsurf classes
approved “Olympic Pathway”
