Just spoken to Karmen Wallace the Event Organiser.
The event is all go for tomorrow.
The forecast is for fine weather..... a southerly turning to westerly then North westerly..... all of the wind strength, no greater than 20kmh to 30kmh by the looks.
Low tide is at 7.56 am so any reflective wash that you usually get off the seawall on Oriental Parade will be negated with the shallow water close to the shore
The courses for surf skis and SUP's are at around 9 am (15km) and 11am (8km)
The SUP surf ski and waka ama short course is likely to be around the Fountain and back which is 7.5 km to 8 km.
If Sharlene can paddle the short course (on the surf ski tomorrow) anyone can............
See you tomorrow provided you're all not on holidays.
