The AWA is a non-profit organisation that relies on membership fees, sponsorship and volunteers to operate. Contact the AWA if you are able to assist with any of these. Membership fees cover costs associated with organising events and importantly the AWA contributes to third-party liability insurance held by Windsurfing NZ which covers events organised by the various windsurfing associations in NZ.
Sail numbers are required for national racing events. Its also useful for identifying your windsurfing gear. To get a sail number you must be a member of Windsurfing NZ or an affiliated club i.e. the AWA. A sail number may not be required for some non-racing national events (i.e. wave, freestyle) but membership of WNZ would still be mandatory.
