Windy Warren Jones Regatta for Waka Racing

Perth, Western Australia, is the place for windsurfing and kite surfing not match racing. Another windy, windy day here that had us match racing in 30+ kts once again. ‘The Doctor’ is psychotic at the moment and we are hoping it will take a chill pill tomorrow for the semi finals.

We have qualified 1st equal, but losing on count back to Will Tiller our fellow RNZYS member after the round robin stage. We had strong winds again turning the highly technical Match Racing into survival racing. We had 6 races today, only losing one this morning in very shifty conditions. Winning most of our starts we seemed to be able to control the rest of our races comfortably. Team's conclusion of the day was that the Lamb sandwiches (lambo sambo's) were outstanding.

Tomorrow brings the semi finals where we hope to be able to progress to the finals to have a crack at defending our title.

Tune into listen to us racing live tomorrow on:

Thanks for the support!
