Yep the wind picked up tonight but you all looked liked you handled the conditions with ridiculous ease.
Of course we'd like to use 2 of the other 4 courses we have on the books this year but the wind generally dictates what's going to be the most user friendly course on the night.
We've raced this short rough weather Northerly course for the last 3 weeks in a row..............but it would be good to use the 4 lap course from the tip of Greta point down to the Coastguard but we'd like the wind to straighten up a bit for that one and also the old crowd favourite, which is Hataitai around the Fountain and back.
It will be interesting to see what the weather gods deliver to us next.
The photos from tonight should be loaded on by 9 pm tomorrow night.
