Welcome to day five here in Brandon Bay, it’s looking light again today with only some small waves rolling in.

As mentioned yesterday, some sailors in particular will be very keen to get the competition run today if it’s at all possible so any sign of wind and waves is sure to bring them onto the water.

The light north easterly winds do have the potential to pick up a little as the day goes on, so Boards will keep you updated at any sign of action.

    Looks like a small but clean wave down at Dumps, very light cross shore winds. Nothing like the conditions earlier on in the week, but looks like a sailor or two might be tempted out to see what it’s like.
