2018 King Island
Well it's been exciting from the very begining, starting earlier in the week when the Race Director Simon Dryden made the call to move the start time from 2.30am to 1.00am. Unfortunately with such light conditions in the few hours leading up to the start, a further review of the race start was required, as light winds and current were presenting challenging conditions to get outside of the heads. In a first ever move, the race startline was moved to off Ocean Grove.
The start was problematic for the rear of the fleet, missing the winds which were actually chasing the leader boats down towards King Island. Moving from 0 - 4kts, initially and then picking up to 15 - 17kts, we now have an exhilerating race to both compete in and to watch on the tracker.
