Yep normally have a BBQ at our place Sat night (all welcome) Shops just up the road for meet and beers. Which will be on again. If unsure where to go to contact, dad or i on here or on Saturday.

Briefing is at this beach at Hawley. If you follow the road beside the water you can't miss us.

Haha that's what I like to hear, although some Tassie folk count Fourex as beer which is a worry

So far the wind is looking a little dodgy. But the event is still on. Hopefully we will get one days racing in. We will either have wind, or no wind. Saturday looks promising for a solid breeze being North Easterly and a seabreeze on top of the forecast, so fingers crossed.

Sorry Izaak but it is looking a bit dodgy, more wind for the south. Lesson number one - do not book accommodation prior to a windsurfing event

If anyone is wondering where briefing is. We have moved south a couple of beaches. You should see cars parked on the point.
