I have done this regatta many times, the venue is great, the weather totally unpredictable. sunshine and blue seas and last year heaps of Whales..
I do not agree with the program of 6 days of racing which includes 2 days of windward returns.
Most of our regattas are windward returns, here we have an opportunity for great passage races, seldom experienced, and such a great venue.
At the moment I am leaning towards entering the PHS fleet which has only 1 W/R day. Airlie is a unique regatta, I enjoy the SB fleet but unless the 2nd W/R is dropped I doubt I will race in our class. Whats your thoughts?
