Taranaki Wave Classic – The Event 1983 was the year that the Taranaki Wave Classic was born, in it’s first guise as the Sirocco Expression Session. Biggie Smithers, along with his board brand Sirocco, ran the first wave sailing contest in Taranaki. It was designed to maximise time on the water for all competitors – this format proved an instant success with 60-70 sailors participating. By this time Carbon Art had moved into the region and was bringing the latest Maui windsurfing shapes and technology to Taranaki’s shores. In 1998 Carbon Art lifted the load off Biggie shoulders and continued with the event rebranded the Carbon Art Classic.
This annual windsurf/foil/wing event is an all-inclusive weekend for sailors of all ages and abilities. We run a small sailing course, closer to shore for our Bronze Fleet (learners) and bigger courses further off-shore for Silver & Gold Fleet sailors. Plus lots of mixed activities too eg. Race to Matakana, Match Races, etc. Our priority is a fun weekend out with other sailors from around the country. We have a food/coffee truck, music, spot prizes, free bbq breaky and, hopefully, plenty of sailing too. *** Event Programme Sat 4 Nov (High Tide 12:53pm) 08:30-10:00 - Sign In & Registrations Close by 10am 10:00-10:30 - Race
