Slapped on some sunscreen and went on one of the Extreme 40 catamarans and it was a stupendous experience. I was too excited I did not bring my camera on board. Dang!
What I can tell you is the sailors’ work wasn’t easy work at all! All the pulling of ropes and constant shifting of positions.
One of the sailors shared how to tell the wind direction and anticipate. The current, trees and simply ‘feeling the wind’ could tell where the wind was coming from.
Alongside the racing there was a host of fun activities for the family as well as food and beverage stalls and best of all entry to watch the racing was free!
It was thrilling and many a times when the catamarans were extremely close to one another I thought they were about the crash. Close shave. Phew!
