Hopefully the wind will swing enough to the North to get things going tomorrow.

Briefing at 1pm NSW time on the Southern side of Flat Rock point.

Go down the path next to the camp ground towards the beach. You won't miss it!

Fingers crossed for some wind....

Looks like you had a great event from the photo's. Great to see so many participants, would have loved to have come down again this year but couldn't break away.

Great job and well done to the organisers and congratulations to all the competitors.

Sweet action! I love the light on the east coast for windsurf action.

well done Hendrix - A new force /dark horse on the wave sailing scene! The Stone wave slaying gene is strong.

I'll second that Matt!

Hendrix had all the moves and style.

Was awesome to see him and Ben battle it out

Hi Guys,

Presentation last night in the Lennox Hotel which went off. Some sore heads this morning and I saw a few of them washing away the cobwebs in the big southerly that came through overnight.

It was cross off this morning at Flat Rock and lots of fun at least till I left at Midday.

Final results are as follows

Open Mens
1st Hendrix Stone
2nd Ben Severne
=3rd Shane Finnigan and Brett Goodwin

Womens
1st Kate Barker
2nd Lucy Ruthven

Masters
1st Sam Lynch
2nd Oli Barta
=3rd Pete Myers and Pat O'Connell

Juniors
1st Alex Halank
2nd Anton Pain
3rd Taj Ladkin

Ams
1st Trent Gordon
2nd Martin Batstone
3rd Anton Pain

No one got eaten by a shark, or beaten for the shark shirt.

More photo's to come i'm sure.

Thanks to everyone who made the trip and the sponsors again.

letting everyone know all the photos from the event will be available online once I've sorted through them all. should only take a couple of days to straighten horizons tweak the colour balance etc. so I'm hoping by the weekend.

once done i'll upload to a website and spread the word. photos will be hi res and something nominal like $1ea. everything online currently is unedited low res.

in the meantime, remember..... harnesses are overrated.

I'd rather the local sharks.
At least they don't tote revolvers.

Quick update for the photos.

Everything is good to go. I've sent out some images to help with media stuff.

I need to upload all of the shots to a website for viewing. Going on the windfest photos it takes a couple of days to get everything uploaded and online. .

We will be good to go this weekend. I'll post links.
