2015 Formula & Raceboard Nationals

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.

The NOR & SI’s are on the Manly Sailing Club Website

RS:X NZ Youth Selection Trials and final Techno 293 Kendall Cup regatta.

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.

Winter Champs Clinic and Regatta, Bruce Kendall Clinics

There are techno Fleets at the following clubs through out the country. Manly, Murrays Bay, Wakatere, Kohimarama, Tauranga and Naval Point. The newest fleet is 25 beginner sailors in Rotorua. If you are in Auckland and want to learn to windsurf these holidays.
Over winter three sailors attended the Worlds in Mdemblik. This spring 5 sailors are competing in the New Caledonia Techno Nationals. There are a few sailors who will be training hard to qualify NZ for the Youth Olympics in 2014.
A disappointing ISAF decision hasn’t deterred Kiwi youths from their Techno’s and RS:X Boards. In just a few short years the Bic Techno T293 has become the board of choice for fun, learning and racing. It does so much well. In light airs it can sail up wind on it’s centreboard. When it is above 10-15 kts they can plane upwind. The board is bulletproof. Very robust. They have great resale value.
If you would like to have a go at windsurfing ask any of the sailors. They would love to help you into the sport.
