It was a full day of competition courtesy of Jamie Knox Watersports as Jamie himself ran the day. Firstly a freestyle contest at Scragane Bay and then a Wave/Jumping Expression session at Trench Bridge.
The conditions were not classic for these parts of the world; cross onshore, choppy with jumping ramps all over the place! But the sailors duly got out there and certainly with the wind going from 4m weather to 5.3m weather all afternoon long, it was a good test to when the ‘proper’ contest starts tomorrow in what we are all hoping will be down-the-line conditions in Brandon Bay or Inch.
