There is only a few weeks to go until the 2011 Windsurfing Oceanic Championships begins and the weather has finally swung to warm conditions. However there has been a lot of rain (floods where it has been years in drought). Winds at Lake Illawarra have generally been NE in the afternoon, with speeds up to 30 knots on some days, but averaging about 15 knots.
The BIC Techno 293 fleet has been competing in the Sail Downunder series, with Sydney sailor Sam Trehane winning in Brisbane from Shari Obrien and Reece Baillie (both Brisbane). In Sydney last year's Australian Boy's champion, Eamon Robertshaw from Perth, dominated to win from Sam Trehane and Reece Baillie. Eamon will be well fired up to go head to head with 2010 Oceanic Champion Antoine Aubert, returning from New Calendonia.
