Setting up on the beach beforehand - Regular sunbathers looked a bit confused when an army of windsurfers suddenly invaded the beach
Lots of gear to test from JP-Australia, NeilPryde, Tabou and Gaastra
On the boat waiting for the competitors to arrive - unaware of the confusion taking place during the start
Competitors making their way to the mark - a nice 22knots was blowing at race time - Perfect!
Eventual winner Foxy had some competition this year
Luke giving chase on the Gaastra Phanotm - pity he crashed 100m before the finish line!
What a view from out in the middle of the bay
Thanks for Stuart Nichols who was the only competitor to give us a wave on the boat
Everyone enjoyed relaxing with a well deserved drink and BBQ (thanks for cooking Carey) after the race
Get excited about doing it all again next year!!!
