We have wind. Woo hoo lets hit the water
I'll run what ever people want to race. I do have some ideas to suit all levels of equipment and skill that will level out the comp. Fun guaranteed and there will be prize money
It may be possible for a sail in Western Port on Sunday or Monday by current forecast. Lovely drive to a different area, bit more rugged, but still pleasant. See how it plays out....
Thanks everyone . Thats how a windsurfing weekend away should be run and participated in. Enough wind turned up for everyone at the correct time and enjoyed the stroke of windsurfing. I'm stuffed
Yes thanks to IWC & SHQ for having a cup weekend event to meet up sail and have fun, thanks also noted to Bass Shire and also SHQ again for some great prizes in particular the foil that went to someone who had destroyed some gear in the windy conditions.
BBQ was a feast followed by a bakers desert spread to appettise the hungriest speed sailors searching for that extra knot or two.
The salads were not to be out done either satisfying the wave n freestylers watching their waist harnesse size.
Disappointed I wasn't able to make it, sounded like a great event. Would be interested in seeing some photos of the action.
I hope the people there might enjoy this.
