THE 42nd Australian Windsurfer Class National Championships continue on Lake Macquarie today off Toronto.
Toronto Amateur Sailing Club is hosing the event, and there are some great vantage points for spectators on the Toronto foreshore.
Competitors from around Australia are contesting a range of classes ranging from juniors, youth and opens, to masters, grand masters and legends.
The championships comprise competition in four disciplines:
- Course Racing – a series of up to 12 all in races, where competitors count their best 10 places;
- Slalom – a short, frantic course where 8 sailors compete in each heat, progressing to a 3 race final;
- Marathon – a spectacular long distance event that takes sailors on a course around the Lake; and
- Freestyle – a three-minute trick routine that showcases board control, artistry and balance set to music and held in close proximity to shore.
