The 2017/18 Summer Series came to a fitting end with a weekend of Wavesailing and great socialising, with wind and waves – not many of us were down at Gerroa for the solid swell on the Saturday morning – those that were there were rewarded with uncrowded overhead waves with plenty of punch to get out on a board or Sup and have a ball.
When the ever reliable Gerroa NE came up a few sailors went out and waves over half mast were there for the patient ones – here are some phone shots of James Fink
There were aerials and some bigger sets enjoyed before we inevitably called it off and headed for drinks and Trophy Presentation at Emery Park – many thanks go to our series sponsor Wind Surf & Snow, as well as Severne Sails & Cronulla Surfing Academy who donated prizes for the series.
Open Pros: Equal 1st place to Adrian Levy & Shane Finnigan, equal 3rd to Francois Pialoux & Zack Coleman
Open Ams: 1st Place Darren Pascoe, 2nd Place Tim Pitcher, 3rd Place Adrien Gacon
Juniors: 1st Place James Fink, equal 2nd Adam Pitcher and Daniel Pitcher
Masters: 1st Place Dean Hendrie, 2nd Place Stephen Robinson, 3rd Place Rob Jacobs

We of course headed up to Fishos for dinner and more refreshments and celebrated what has been a great season.

Sunday offered smaller surf, but we had sufficient wind to finish the series’ final event with several hours of quality free sailing – there was a feeling of being in a great Team, even though we had no formal event, everyone there enjoyed the weekend.
