Update on PFD legislation (SA)

September 15, 2012

Just a note to update WindsurfingSA members on progress on the PFD legislation.  Unfortunately for Harry (1st Seabreeze link), we now have clear evidence of the dangers of wearing the wrong PFD in the wrong circumstance.  A small group lead by Harry and including WSA and SAKSA  will be meeting with Transport SA at some date yet to be confirmed.  The consensus seems to be evolving towards seeking a change to the current (and new) Victorian legislation.  Their rules are:
– no PFD if within 400m of shore if wearing a wetsuit at least 3mm thick
– Type 1 or 2 PFD if more than 400 m from shore

Link to the following document if you want more info on the different legislations across the states.
PFD Legislation and Windsurfing in South Australia

Discussions on Seabreeze Forum:
* Windsurfer wearing pfd in surf suffers neck injury
* Changing the BS PFD Legislation

SA Govt:
* Marine safety equipment

Keep Windsurfing in Olympics

May 9, 2012


You probably have already heard the bad news that Windsurfing was not selected by ISAF to be part of the 2016 Olympic Regatta in Rio

Believe me we are working on a plan to reverse this decision… In the meantime, we will not stand a chance without you taking action too.

Please click the following link and sign the petition


AND ask all your friends to do so

AND ask them to ask their friends

AND ask them to ask their friends

and so on until we have 100,000 signatures or more.

That is our first target and with your help we can do it.  There are other plans in the works which we are working on but if you do what I ask then you will have done your part… for now

I’ll get back to you with more as it happens
