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.
