Xanthe Bowater - RS:X windsurfing - Post Portugal update

Hello again! A very jet lagged Xanthe here, I arrived back into Auckland last Monday afternoon and was back at work straight away. (Might I add, the weather in this country is far too cold for my liking!)

So I have had a week to think about writing this email and figure out how to summarise such an awesome two weeks of the most intense racing I’ve ever done, in some of the most testing conditions and against some of the best under 19 female windsurfers in the world. Here is what I came up with:

Windsurfing Instructor/Schools Update - Adventure Activities legislation

This legislation has been in the pipeline for some time - driven largely by a few high profile fatal accidents in the 'adventure tourism' sector - where people with essentially no previous skills pay to experience risk but expect to be completely safe. Unfortunately sports sports and activities like ours have been caught in the backlash, and despite the fact that we have for many years had a variety of standards in place we are still subject to this 'lowest common denominator' legislation.

Update from Xanthe Bowater -

Xanthe gives a run down on what she's done, what she's doing and what she'll be doing in the future.

Hello again!
I think the last time I wrote to all of you was when I returned from the youth worlds in Italy last October; so we have a lot to catch up on!

CWA Mid Winter Supper and Prize Giving!

Sat 28 Jun 2014
Naval Point Club

Well there has been a lot of rain since the last newsletter and not a lot of sailing, so it is time to say goodbye to Summer and get through winter as soon as possible.

We will be holding our prizegiving at Naval Point Club on

28 June at 7:30 pm

We will also have something to eat as well, so we will have a small cover charge of $10 and if you feel like dressing up for mid winter, go for it!

Would you please return your trophies to Allan Taylor at Groundswell as soon as possible so we can hand them out again to the successful winners to be announced on the night.

Flying Forwards windsurf school Whangaparaoa for sale

Flying Forwards windsurf school is located at Whangaparaoa. After 7 fun filled years they have decided to get a ' proper' job. The reason is due to working weekends v's family commitments.

The school runs well and is able to pay a hefty mortgage and feed kids.

As it is a mobile windsurf school run out of a van and trailer it is possible to run it anywhere in country. However they would love to see it run in Whangaparaoa, as it has existing customers and a great reputation.
