Wind and Rain in equal proportions...
25 June 2007
It was a weekend of two halves -wind on saturday , rain on sunday - and plenty of both !
Ocean Festival from Hove Lagoon was undoubtedly a success - summed up perfectly by the race team as they relaxed over a final cuppa before heading home - " a result in all disciplines -championship slalom racing, freewave , speedgun challenge and a masterblaser to finish off !"
The Masterblaster consisted of a beach start , a burn round a committee boat moored off brighton pier and back to the beach ---- in tricky on shore winds ! . Only 8 of the starters were able to complete the course in decreasingly suitable conditions -and here they are -
1. XavirFerlet ; 2. Alan Jackson; 3. Guy Cribb; 4. Dan Simpson ; 5 Rich Jones ; 6. Ian Jones; 7. Sam Sills; 8. Sam Latham.
Special thanks to Harvey Dawkins and the Team at Hove Lagoon Watersports; to BLOC Eyewear ; and to Eurovans, long time sponsors of the event at Hove and of the forthcoming Estbourne Extreme.
Full results and reports can be found on the website - photos will be published shortly.
