We’ve just finished up at the 2014 Downunder Pro, Australian & Oceanic formula windsurfing championships. For the first time in over 4 years the event moved back to Sydney to race at Georges River Sailing Club on Botany Bay. 11 races over 3 hardcore days and I have clinched my 7th Australian FW title! Jesper Vesterstrøm from Denmark was down here again to race and despite leading against him after the first 6 races he managed to claw his way back and beat me by 2 points with the event title coming down to the final race! My teammate Luke Baillie was also racing and finished 3rd overall and 2nd Aussie and won the final race of the event.
It was our first hit out on all the new equipment; Starboard 167 boards and Severne Reflex 5 sails featuring the new 11.5m sizing which is new for 2014 and the sail that got the most airtime during the event. Pretty impressed with all the equipment on it’s first run out on the water; easy, fast and amazing angle.
