The conditions have provided a bit of everything, with some more moderate conditions early each day, which has been followed by wavy and breezy conditions that you’d expect in Adelaide’s Gulf St Vincent.

Two more days of racing are scheduled on 11 and 12 January to close out the championship.

Event media has been made possible thanks to the support of HillPDA Consulting.
