Even though we had to make this a spring event over a mid winter event we had planned it was a fantastic day. The weather held out and everyone that came along had a blast. A huge thank you to all the entrants and our awesome Sponsors Spy and Wanaka Beerworks.
What a fantastic day of racing at TC! There were a lot of smiling faces at the prize giving and the feedback was the course was nice and challenging!
We wanted to thank all the competitors for being so fun and giving us such great racing to watch. Despite the low vis at times everyone took on the challenge and was frothing.
