Great day out. NE really delivered and racing inside the reef was brilliant.
Because the runs are short starts are critical and gybes are critical so tactically it is really exciting.
Most races were standing start, 3 gybes figure-8 style slalom.
Great turnout of guys. Angus ran heats of 4 at a time and then 6 at a time for round 2.
I raced on 6.0 and supersport but in the final, towards early afternoon was totally overpowered and board was uncontrollable - dropped every gybe! Great fun, though.
I was broken afterwards... Cliff and I had a brief burn beyond the reef looking for jumps and rides off limestone but was no fun for me on 6.0 and wave board. Note to self - wave board does not like the 6.0... max 5.5, really.
Some of the others went on to run another wave round at Ansteys in rather hectic conditions apparently.
