Sterkies Speed Event   Ocean2Air

Friday : The wind was around 15 knots most of the day with an hour of 20 knots at lunch time, so there was just free sailing. 14 people stayed over on Friday night.

Saturday : We had excellent wind most of the day (32-37 knots measured at 10h40), with a brief lighter patch after a storm at 1pm. The wind had too much North in it which made the course fairly bumpy, but the speeds attained were very impressive none the less.

Sunday : Wind is howling at present (23h16) and it's forecast to continue throughout the night and into the morning. We plan to be on the water early as the wind's expected to fade later in the day. The direction is forecast to be West which is ideal for speed, so keep an eye on the site tomorrow evening for the final results.

This is the best turn out since the event started, and the atmosphere it full of excitement.
Many thrills and spills were had today, and we have great footage of all the action. Pictures to follow on Monday.
