Sterkies Speed Event 2013



The wind blew over 30 knots for 3 straight days making this the windiest event to date on average.

Saturday saw gusts reach 36 knots, Sunday 42 knots and Monday 44 knots.
The temperatures were warm up until Sunday despite all the wind.  
The Gauteng turnout was very disappointing considering the wind drought we've had, but thankfully KZN showed their support once again and made this a memorable event.

We could not run the speed discipline as the wind direction remained NW throughout which makes the run short and the water very choppy.
The Big-Air contest more than made up for this though, and there were some spectacular jumps, some were awe-inspiring and the best I have ever seen at Sterkies.

I will upload pictures and video clips of the action within 24 hours.
