RPS / Starboard Flatwater SUP Series 2010/11

Revised programme for this weekend – 18 & 19/12/2010. Forecast for Saturday Winds: Westerly 15 to 25 knots tending west to southwesterly 10 to 15 knots around midday then tending south to southwesterly about 10 knots by early evening. Winds tending south to southeasterly about 10 knots later in the evening. Seas: 1 to 1.5 metres increasing to 2 metres around dawn then decreasing to 1 metre during the afternoon. The chance of thunderstorms in the morning. Forecast for Sunday Winds: Northeasterly 10 to 15 knots tending north to northwesterly 15 to 20 knots during the morning then tending west to southwesterly during the afternoon. Seas: 0.5 to 1 metres increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the evening. The chance of thunderstorms from midday. The wind on Sat morning is going to make it virtually impossible to demo any sup’s in the bay. The SUP Tour bus will still be at Elwood Foreshore carpark with it’s full compliment of demo boards for people to try if keen and there will be staff to chat to about the various new models. Hopefully the wind will moderate during the day to allow sup demo. Also, for those of you who windsurf, there will be a range of new 2011 Starboard and Severne toys to play with. Sunday / Race day will see a shift of venue to Mentone Beach.  Mentone offers great protection from the wind and there’s very little chop to contend with. Parking is located at either the carpark adjacent to the Lifesaving Club or in side streets off Beach Rd. Unfortunately there is a parking curfew on Beach rd on Sat and Sun between the hours of 6am and 10am due to the number of cyclists that frequent the area. It’s probably easiest to unload your boards in the carpark and then re-park your car. The Melways ref for Mentone is 86 J7. There is also stair access opposite Plummer st. Racing will start at 9.30am Sharp, as there’s a cahnce the wind may swing early. If you’re not a Sup Vic Member, then perhaps join online beforehand, as entry to the entire RPS/Starboard 3 race series is absolutely FREE! How’s that for value? Sup Vic representatives will be there on the day if you wish join then. The Starboard Sup Tour Demo bus will also be there on Sunday for anyone that would like to try any of the 2011 Starboard Sup’s. Come and Play. See you all there.
