Sadly first time in awhile that I couldn't race and this time there was wind. So I became the photo guy instead.
The race is run by the South Gippsland Yacht Club and it starts at the club house ,races to a buoy inside the inlet and back. About 22km. This years race had a 10kt E wind at the start, ending with a 25 kt E . Classic race ,hard up wind and return with the wind. Perfect for boats
Well done everyone, it looked hard but fun

the 8.2 mtr on the Jet was perfect for the first 20 min until the wind went from 10 kts to 25kts. Accepted a tow in the last 500 mtrs as had no strength left to hold on.
spent most of my time sailing into the wind to have some control
Well done to James, Richie and Lisa who came from Sydney to join in the fun. 12 windsurfers racing 20 boats including some serious cats.
3 of the windsurfers beat the boats back. The windsurfers included, raceboards, short boards, Division 2 raceboard, formula boards and longboards.

The Raceboards didn't tack as many time as I had to
