Great news in announcing the confirmed dates of the Indian Ocean Championship - the Tri-Nations of windsurfing between Mauritius, Australia and South Africa. Some of you may remember I went last year for the first trial run of the concept… it was a huge amount of fun, and with the event confirmed for 3 - 11 August; it's both a short week for us with the public holiday and a fantastic time to get out of the cold. As the 2013 national champion in racing, the organisers of the event are sponsoring Mitch Wagstaff's airfare and accommodation, so he can face off against the Mauritian and Australian national champs
All entrants must live in SA and all pics/videos must be taken in SA 2013. Judging will be by public vote.

1a) I always check what the wind is doing, Whether its picking up, staying the same or dropping. This always gives you a good indication what to rig. I also like to give my equipment a quick test before the start of the race in case I need to do some fine tuning.
b) Most start sequences are 4 mins. The best is to run 1min away from the mark into the course then run 1 min back to that start mark then a further 1 min away from the start mark away from the course and finally run 1 min flat out to the start mark.
c) Positioning: I always like to run upwind(boat end) best clean wind straight down to the first mark.
d) Fastest route to the gybe would often depend who is around you and what your positioning is like heading towards the first mark.
