Wow great pics Ty and thanks for the support from Ocean Surf Co.

What a great afternoon on the water but racing is hard work! Cool racing with such a variety of craft though. Can't believe I caught the gybe mark chain with my foil.twice Hahaa!

Interesting seeing close up how the foils excel in the lulls then all the fins blasting and foils flying when it picked up. Would be really interesting racing when it's cranking!!Thanks Richard and Ian (The Dominator!) for organising.

Hard work but well worth it.
Goodtime racing with the fins and the foils, plenty of stacks for everyone ?? ??
Kudos to Richard for dropping the bouys out 500mtrs with his kayak.

First race, first leg I thought we were heading to Yorkes until we finally spotted the bouy - 100 metres down wind and 200 metres behind us!!

Nice shots Ty!
It was great to sail in a tight fleet - certainly keeps you on your toes with some really close drags and passes.
Watch out for the foilers - the "silent assassins"!
