Event Of The Year


With no wind forecast at Phillip Island, the event was moved to the back up location Sandy Point. The warm temperatures, sunshine and easterly airflow provided all of the elements necessary to accelerate the cross-offshore wind. With waves anywhere between shoulder and logo high the conditions delivered for the first round of competition. After a couple of days of surfing to warm up, many sailors were pushing hard, with full speed late hits and floaty aerials being the order of the day.
