Merimbula Sailboard Club struck lucky on Saturday morning. After a few days of flat ocean, we were greeted with the sight of small waves right in front of the club house. The sun shone brightly for the entire day, and the tide was favourable for the comp. Everyone had a great day.
Jed Done entertained the crowd.
Thanks to all our generous sponsors for this event.
