Wednesday Night Racing


Wednesday Night Racing From 5th November through summer starting at 5pm the AWA will run social races. Each will be weather dependent and held at one of Pt Chev, Meola reef, Buckland’s beach or Takapuna. The one we select each Wednesday being weather and tide dependent. Details will be announced on Tuesdays via the usual channels. You can then pack your cars and come straight from work the next day to enjoy the fun. The format is rolling races starting every 15 minutes. So if you can’t get there until 6pm you can still join it. You can sync your start watch from a watch that will be placed behind a car windscreen at the venue. Details will be announced on Tuesdays via the usual channels. No scoring or protests etc. The aim is to give people start line and gybe mark experience, without the pressure of winning. A long distance race or two may be thrown in. Last race will be at 7pm with some beers and bbq and some beach side race reflection/education by some of use “experienced” racers. The idea here is that if we pick a fixed day each week, it will be easier to get it scheduled in with the other halves. The other halves will get to accept that each Wednesday its race day. If the wind is not cooperative then its a bonus for the other halves to have their addicted halves off the water. AWA. Arranging Windsurfing Action!!
