The 3rd RS Aero World Championship in Melbourne Australia continued following a day off on New Years Day. Conditions were splendid with 10kn increasing to 16kn by the end off the day under clear blue skies and pleasantly hot but bearable temps.
Three back-to-back races were scheduled and the race officer got racing off promptly with a quick turn around between races.
The Port Phillip Bay waves built nicely providing some fantastic rides downwind as the agile RS Aeros veered and surfed around the crests
The RS Aero 5 fleet saw three race winners Sophie Jackson AUS, Ned Stattersfield GBR and Kazuyoshi Nakao JPN taking the line honours. The top three overnight were Sophie Jackson AUS 1st, Megan Ridgway AUS 2nd and David Ellis GBR in 3rd. More here.
