Just an update for this Fri. If we get over 14 sailors the committee will give us $750. If we get over 21 sailors we get $1000. If this happens we can do more prize money and lucky draws.
Cheers Steve.

I thought you guys were my friends! I have a spare Windsurfer OD if anyone wants a trip down memory lane.

I'll be there with a D2 board, happy to bring another OD if someone wants a shot at second place.

Forecast is looking not too bad. 10/15 knot SE seabreeze. Temp 27 so should be a good day. I will bring a carton of beer too.

I have posted on WT facebook page that I can bring a few longboards for those who might want one, and also that PFDs will be available for a very reasonable fee from WT for the event. Please let me (or someone else) know well in advance if you would like either.

I can rustle up about three ODs/raceboards myself, and if there were more takers I would either ask around for ODs (eg relic) or get some rios from WT.

If there are more than 3 takers I will deal with it as required.

The ODs will be hot contenders if the wind is light (and a trip down memory lane too).

Can't be at the last minute though.

The division 2 board is not up for grabs.

First place and back to back winner Will Short $350.
Second place Karen Robertson $250
3rd Fergus Charles $150
4th Dave Morehead
5th Allen Short.
$50 lucky door prize Dave.
Thanks Clarence who drove from Launceston. Great effort. Be good to get some more from up north next year.

Great to be involved with this event. A shame the D2 didn't get a run, but such a variety of boards and abilities on the water. Maybe a "plastic/One Design category next year? Great to see a lady and "junior" right up there.

Here a few pics thanks to Max.

Great photos. I love the photo of Kazza. Not sure if she thought she was still sailing or doing a second place celebration.

Photos were by Max using my camera. Takes after the old man both on the water and in photographic skills it would seem.
