I would like to thank all the people that made GI happen you are a special bunch dedicating your time for us to sail.
It was a freak chance to have an east coast low stuff up the consistent wind at GI and very disappointing for all concerned, but that is our sport.
I still had an unreal time meeting and making new friends doing snorkelling etc that you would normally not do.
All in all a great time.
I feel privileged to have won the GPS against so many brilliant windsurfers.
Thanks to my wife and sponsors The Windsurfing Shed,Maui sails, Exocet boards that allowed this to happen.
Please do it again next year it is a trip of a life time.

Close between 2nd and 3rd! 0.05 NM translates to Justin and Kel being 93 metres apart at the end after sailing neck and neck for an hour.

Well done Byron, Justin, Kel and all who competed! The event showed that even if the wind skunked out we could have a great time. Many thanks to all the organisers- great job. Gotta be there next year!!!

Thanks Ian, John, Simon, Kelly, Kaleb and Jodi and possibly Ben with his dodgy computer skills and any others I have missed for organising and running the event as the framework was there just missing the wind. Also well done to Michael, who deservedly won the Masters!

Well done to all the winners, such a shame about the wind conditions and not being able to get a result for the slalom but as we all know thats just part of our sport unfortunately. So close Kel you have such a fantastic local hopefully next year conditions will return and those that haven't seen GI at its best will get to experience winds like we had in 2014!

Refer to the website:-

For Slalom Table 1, all heats for Rounds 1 & 2 were completed; no Heats in the Round 3 Finals were sailed. Prizes were awarded for Youth, Grand Masters (1st only) and Women; there was no clear result for the Open division.
