Thanks to Dylan from Ka72 who piloted the WindWanderers club drone to get some great footage of the event. This is a quick unedited clip of the first day out on the bank.

And love my new blueeye sunglasses, thank you!

Four fabulous days sailing. Thanks to the organisers for a slick well run event and thanks to the generosity of the sponsors. Love my Gath hemet and Chinook mug -coffee with cred!
The wind was great, sailors friendly and a PB, doesn't get any better than that. Finished up Monday night with dinner at the pub

Great Event and great location. Thanks to all the organisers who gave up sailing to run the event. The ultimate sacrifice!!!!
A few more photos salvaged from some pretty shaky video

Yep, a big thanks from me too. Fantastic organisation and support with the sponsors. Im sure some of those stuck on the bank helping out would have rather been sailing so thanks again guys.

I'd like to again thank the committee, volunteers and sponsors for such a fabulous event and the sailors for a great vibe on and off the water. The moment we have an inkling of dates for next year I'll be booking my leave! Remember if you're coming through NQ say hi!
