I heard about this today at work.

www.sandandsea.com.au/

Still trying to find out more information but there's a good chance that the "Bay to the Beach" downwinder will be available for us pole dancers. Check it out and feel free to do some digging yourselves. If you find anything of interest, share it on this thread.

Whilst I don't expect anything available regarding prizes, it will be a great opportunity to do the downwinder regardless. The more of us the better!!

So the organiser is super keen to include windsurfing into the mix. He's going to confirm with the racing / watersport activities organiser to ensure that it will work. I cannot see there being any problems.

There's also a significant interest in having some representation from the sport at a state organisation level and even to have some of our windsurfing gear vendors / retailers get involved. Please contact Mark Emmerton via emo@eliteenergy.com.au if anyone is interested.

Will keep everyone informed.

Yep. Only if you do the upwind leg first from Husky, sail across the bay and then the screaming 10k broad downwinder to finish you off! Made that trip many times.

I'm in!

Thanks Craig for the heads up!

Windsurfers were added after the other classes so it must have been an oversight.

They are really keen to get windsurfers on board.

I've emailed the organiser, Mark (Emo) Emerton from Elite Events and I will Post an update when they have repaired the link.

You can call them if you like for any questions, details on their website.

The NE'ers should be starting to fire up soon.

Nice one Kato, i know some guys are definitely going. I am also hoping to do one day.

I dunno much about the race committee and if they have sailing experience, probably do but if they dont we should get together to help them out so in the end everyone enjoys and has good challenges ?

I read it. They move the start to hyams beach so it will always be a downwind race. In good winds Slalom boards will be fastest i reckcon

Was hoping to get there today Kato, but won't make it. Bummed to miss catching up with the pit crew, are you guys heading straight back or hanging for a day or two?

Quite a few of us were up at the Forster NSW event last weekend, I'd say most in same boat, pushing it to get away to another event 2 weekends in a row
