Spots to Kitesurf in Sardinia

Now the questions are: Where to Kitesurf in Sardinia? In which kitesurf Sardinia spots where I can learn to Kitesurf?

Sardinia, as well as being a beautiful country, rich in natural, cultural, culinary traditions and landscapes, has 1,897 km of coastline and is one of the windiest regions in Europe. Because of its location, in the center of the western Mediterranean, Sardinia is a very wind island where the most frequent winds are Mistral (NW) and Scirocco (SE). it is rich in great beaches, of which many are  away from the bustle of the crowds of swimmers. With this conditions, Sardinia can be considered a paradise for kitesurfing: Kitesurf Sardinia, one word!

In Sardinia, you can therefore find many places that have the ideal characteristics for kiteboarding.

The south of Sardinia is probably one of the windiest coast of the Mediterranean and therefore rich in many Kite Spots: Poetto of Cagliari, Petrol Beach in Capoterra near Cagliari, Quartu Sant’Elena, Chia, Villasimius, Santa Margherita di Pula, Funtanamare, Porto Botte, Punta Trettu.

The main beach of Cagliari, Poetto, is perhaps the best known by tourists. It is between the Sella del Diavolo (Devil’s Saddle) and Quartu Sant’Elena. Besides being famous for its nightlife, it is also a great spot for kitesurfing: there is a lot of space, since Poetto is long approximately 10 km where Mistral, Scirocco and Levante blow almost every day. The beach is sandy and is easily accessible both by car and by public transport. At Poetto beach every year take place some kite events, as the Kite Foil World Championships 2017. To understand in which weather conditions and which kite lessons and courses are proposed in this Kite Spot of Sardinia, you can have a look at the Sardinia Kitesurfing Lessons page.

La Maddalena Spiaggia better knows as Petrol Beach in Capoterra, blown in the summer months by Scirocco, Ostro and Thermic winds. On the hot days of summer it is an ideal spot for kite surfing, even for beginners. To understand in which weather conditions and which kite lessons and courses are proposed in this Kite Spot of Sardinia, you can have a look at the Sardinia Kitesurfing Lessons page.

Another beach for kitesurfing, always in the south-west of Sardinia, is certainly the beach of Chia: white beach and crystal clear waters exposed to the Mistral and the south winds. Chia is a Kite spot for expert and for this reason kite lessons and courses are proposed just in some cases.

Also the bay of Porto Botte is another ideal place for kitesurfing, suitable both for beginners and experts. It is a long bay about 2 km where there are 3 sensational kite spots: Il Fortino, Porto Botte, Is Solinas.

Among others, Punta Trettu, considered one of the best Kite spots in Sardinia. In fact, with shallow and flat water, Punta Trettu is a perfect Kite Beach especially for beginners: they can stand up and walk in case of need. A Kite Paradise! To understand in which weather conditions and which kite lessons and courses are proposed in this Kite Spot of Sardinia, you can have a look at the Sardinia Kitesurfing Lessons page.

Or it may be that the Mistral blows for a day, the day after will blow the thermic wind and then scirocco, Grecale or Libeccio (the best place with Libeccio are Geremeas and Villasimius).

As example of what has been said above, you can have look at the following image: it shows the weather / wind forecast for the days of 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 January 2018. As you can see, in those forecasts the wind changes direction and intensity every day.

Sardinia Kitesurfing Seasona Kitesurfing Sardinia in October, September, August, July, June, May, April, March

It is time to plan your kitesurfing holidays? Are you wondering which is the best Kitesurfing Season in Sardinia? If you are looking for a long week or even months of strong winds, Sardinia, and in particular the south of the island, can offer among the best spots for kitesurfing in Europe. On this page you could understand which is the Sardinia Kitesurfing Season, which are the winds of Sardinia, which are the best Kite Spots of Sardinia and where to have Kite Lessons in Sardinia.

Kitesurf in Sardinia

Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The coast of Sardinia (approximately 1900 kilometers) has a lot of beaches perfect for kitesurfing: great kite spots with great winds. 

Sardinia can be divided in the four (4) zones: North coast, East coast, South coast, West coast.

With reference to the weather conditions for kitesurfing, we can say that the east coast of Sardinia is the less windy (for this reason it is also the greenest). The west coast, apart the zone of Oristano (and the famous spot of Capu Mannu, anyway not for beginners) has a morphology (many cliffs on the sea) that does not make it perfect for kitesurfing.

For the above reasons, the two best kitesurfing zones of Sardinia are the South and North of the island.

The main differences between the Sardinia Kitesurfing Spots of South and of North are mainly related to the quality of the wind, the air and sea temperatures, and the number of kite spots.

Best Sardinia Kitesurfing Spots

No long ago. Kitesurf in Sardinia was associate with Porto Pollo, famous for the glorious past.

In the recent past instead, Souther Sardinia has had an exponential growth as a destination chosen by people who like to practice and to learn to kitesurf. The reasons for this choice are:

  • the high number and diversity of southern Sardinia kite spots, beaches and landscapes;
  • high percentage of windy days;
  • good travel connections from the most of Europe’s capital and the airport and the harbor of Cagliari.

In addition, the kite spots of Southern Sardinia are more variables and less crowded than the kite spots of the Northern Sardinia. Considering all the kite spots between the south east, the south and and the south west of the island, the probability of finding wind every day is really high.

Cagliari with its Poetto Beach and Giorgino Kite Beach, Petrol Beach in Capoterra, Villasimius, Chia, Pula, Funtanamare, Porto Botte, Punta Trettu are ones between the the best known kite spots of Sardinia.

To get detailed information on each kite spot, go to the related page.

Winds of Sardinia

The most frequent winds in Sardinia

In North of Sardinia, the most frequent winds are Mistral (NW), Tramontana (N) and Grecale (NE). In the North, those wind are usually gusty because the nearby Corsica.

In South of Sardinia, the most frequent winds are Mistral (NW), Sirocco (SE) and, in some kite spots, the thermal wind. In the South, those winds are usually steady.

With regard to the thermal wind, this wind  born from the difference in temperature between the masses of air above the sea and those above the earth. From April to September, in the hottest and clearest days, the warm air above the earth is moving up and and the vacuum generated by this movement is filled by the the cold air above the sea. This air movement is called Thermal wind. In some beaches (e.g. Poetto Beach of Cagliari, Petrol Beach, Giorgino), this thermal wind, in some conditions, can blow even more than 20 knots.

Wind statistics in Sardinia: kitesurfing in Sardinia throughout the year

Now that we have understood the most frequent winds in Sardinia, we will have a look at the wind statistics of Sardinia.

In any case, we need to underline that:

  • In Sardinia the wind is changing often in direction so the kite spot for kitesurfing could change even everyday:
  • wind statistics have been radically upset by the sudden changes in climate, not making very predictable a prediction that is only mathematical. For this reason, the experience of local is really important to make great satistics and to find the proper wind in the proper kite spot everyday.

Wind Statistics in the North of Sardinia

In the north of Sardinia, the most famous kite spot is certainly Porto Pollo.

Its strong winds from North West (intensified by a Venturi effect created in the mouths of Bonifacio) have made Porto, since the ’80s, a paradise for windsurfers. Now Porto Pollo has became even a beach for kitesurfing.

The percentage of days with wind stronger than 4 bft (11-16 knots) is more than 60% in July and September, the months, statistically, more favorable.

All the north coast of Sardinia has kite spots (e.g. Porto Pollo, Badesi, San Teodoro) with excellent wind statistics from April to October.

Wind Statistics in the South of Sardinia

In the south of Sardinia, there are several famous kite spots e.g. Funtanamare, Punta Trettu, Porto Botte, Chia, Cagliari, Villasimius.

Punta Trettu and Porto Botte have similar wind statistics. Even thanks to the thermal winds, those kite spots have excellent wind statistics throughout the year, with peaks 90% of month windy days more than 4 bft. This is the reason why, Porto Botte and especially Punta Trettu are always in the first positions of the chosen destinations for kitesurfing.

Going to the south of the Island, there is the Kite Spot of Chia, a heavenly location where kitesurfing is practiced in every season, with optimal conditions in autumn and winter with the winds blowing from East. in Chia, statistics say 50% of windy days above 4 bft / 11-16 knots, all over the year.

The area of Cagliari, from Poetto Beach to Giorgino and Petrol Beach, offers for sure perfect conditions for teaching and practicing kitesurfing: perfect winds and beaches allow you to kitesurf safety. The beast winds in the area of Cagliari are Scirocco (SE), Levante (E) and the Thermal Wind. in the area of Cagliari, statistics say 80% of windy days above 4 bft / 11-16 knots, all over the year.

Going further to the south-east of Sardinia, there are the kite spots of Villasimius, where the best winds is the Grecale (NE), blowing especially during the autumn season. In Villasimius, the percentage of days good for kitesurfing is approximately 40%.

Even the water temperatures are higher in the South Sardinia than the North. Temperatures of the sea in Sardinia are approximately 23-25°C during the Summer, between 21 and 15 °C during the Winter.

How does a kite surf fly?

Are you wondering How does a kite fly? On this page you could easily understand how a kite fly and learn the the kite is very similar the to the wings of an airplane.

Index

I. How Wings Lift the Plane: how an airplane flights

Airplane wings are shaped to make air move faster over the top of the wing.

Lift of an airplane (itesurf) Bernoulli Equation
Lift of an airplane (itesurf) Bernoulli Equation

When air moves faster, the pressure of the air decreases (Bernoulli’s equation simlpified:  P + 1/2 * V^2 / ρ = Constant; P = Pressure, V= Velocity, ρ = Density of fluid) .

On the top of the wing the velocity of the air is more than the velocity in the bottom of the wing. For the Bernouilli’s equatuion that means that the pressure on the top of the wing is less than the pressure on the bottom of the wing.

The difference in pressure creates a force on the wing that lifts the wing up into the air.

forces of flight | forces acting on a airplane
forces of flight | forces acting on a airplane

Forces acting in a airplane during the flight are 4:

  • Lift – upward
  • Drag – backward
  • Weight – downward
  • Thrust – forward.

To have more infos on How an aiplane flights and How to control the Flight of a Plane, look at this NASA link.

II. Differences between an airplane and a kite: How does a kite fly?

Like an airplane wing, a kite can fly due to various forces acting on it.

The main differences are that an airplane has thrust while a kite has line tension and an airplane is balanced by its weight around its Center of Gravity (CoG) while a kite is balanced by its effective tow points (which can be adjusted automatically by the kite or manually by the kiter) and its weight at CoG (center of Gravity).

The forces and torques that act in a kite and how they are acting:

  • Wind Generated Forces
  • Gravity Force
  • Line Tension

To have a better idea about force acting on a kite, read the post Forces and torques on a kite.

III. Kite Design Parameters

The most easy to manipulate and highly visible kite parameters are:

  1. Aspect Ratio (AR)
  2. Airfoil Profile
  3. built-in Angle of Attack (AoA) of the kite
  4. Summary of the Aspect Ratio, Airfoil, AoA parameters.

1. Aspect Ratio

Airplane Wing Geometry Definitions | Aspect ratio, chord Kitesurf
Airplane Wing Geometry Definitions | Aspect ratio, chord Kitesurf

Aspect Ratio (AR) is approximately Span/Chord of the kite or more exactly Span*Span/Area (see more info about a Wing Geometry Definitions at this NASA link).

Since Aspect Ratio determines the shape of the kite it is the most visible kite design parameter that the user will see.

Higher Aspect Ratio kites have less induced drag (upwash and tip vortex effects)  than Lower AR kites of the same characteristics. Induced drag is inverse proportional to AR.  So when stationary at the wind window, a low AR kite can generate the same amount of pull as a higher AR kite (of the same characteristics) but as soon as we need to move the kite for more power (for jumping or underpowered situation), a higher AR kite can accelerate faster therefore get more power sooner than a low AR kite.

As a rule of thumb, a higher AR kite has a larger Power Window (the difference between min power and max power) and a lower AR kite has a smaller Power Window.

Following are the recommended AR ranges:

Kite Type Very Low AR Low AR Moderate AR High AR Very High AR
Foil 2.5- 3 4 5 5.5+
Inflatable / Arc 3- 4 5 6 7+

Note: Inflatable and Arc have spherical shape, a natural stable form, therefore their ARs are normally higher than foil’s.

2. Airfoil Profile

Airfoil has lift but also drag.

A profile with the highest lift when stationary will give the strongest pull when stationary at the wind window (AoA around 5 degrees).

A profile with the highest lift/drag ratio will accelerate faster and will generate strongest pull when flying across the power zone.  A high lift airfoil is sometime labelled a “tractor” airfoil as it will pull like a tractor at the wind window.

A high lift/drag airfoil is labelled a “speed” airfoil as it flies very fast across the power zone and generate tremendous amount of pull while doing so.  A speed airfoil may generate a lot of pull at the wind window but may not be necessary as much as a tractor airfoil.

The following table show the recommended lift and lift/drag ratio ranges:

Very Low Low Moderate High Very High
Lift Coefficient (at AoA = 5) 0.5- 0.7 0.9 1 1.1+ (Tractor)
Lift/Drag 40- 50 70 90 110+ (Speed)

Please note that these Lift/Drag ratios are the calculated ratio and not included Induced Drag.  In reality, the “real world” L/D ratios are reduced by a factor of 6 or 7.

It’s better to use an airfoil design program (such as DesignFoil at http://www.dreesecode.com/) to design, analyze and select the airfoil profile to use for the kite (for kiting purposes, the Reynolds number is around 1,000,000 to 2,000,000). Some kite designers being shy from the complexity of airfoil design and analysis, uses the rule of thumb method of changing the profile thickness/camber  for changing the lift and lift/drag characteristics of a profile.  This methodis not accurate but maybe acceptable for kites.

As a general rule of thumb, increase the profile thickness/camber to increase lift at wind window and decrease a profile thickness/camber to increase the speed of the kite.  The following table show the range of profile thickness/camber used for most kites:

Foil and Arc Inflatable
  • Thin Profile (Speed): 14% or less
  • Moderate Profile: 15%
  • Thick Profile: 16%
  • Thicker Profile: 17%
  • Thickest Profile (Tractor): 18% or more
  • Thin Profile (Speed): 8% – 9%
  • Moderate Profile: 10%
  • Thick Profile: 11%
  • Thicker Profile: 12%
  • Thickest Profile (Tractor): 13% – 14%

3. Built-in AoA

A kite get more lift with a higher Angle of Attacked (AoA) to the wind (more surface projected to the wind and also from 0 to 16 degrees of AoA, the Lift Coefficient of an airfoil normally increase to an optimum value).  Each kite has a “neutral” built-in AoA for the center of the kite and the wing tip when it is at the wind window straight over-head (with front lines and back lines of equal length).

The range of the built-in AoA is normally from 0 to 5 degrees.

Note that the wind-window angle is around 85 degrees such that the in-flight AoA of the center profile at the wind window is the sum of the built-in AoA and 5 degrees (or 90 – 85).  Note that changing the built-in AoA of the kite may also change the wind window angle such that the two will “amplify” each other to have a “double AoA” effect.  E.g., changing the built-in AoA from 2 to 0 may make the wind window angle change from 85 to 86; therefore the in-flight AoA of the kite at wind window is now 4 degrees instead of 7. It is interesting to read Peter Lynn’s Myth 1 and 2 in which he stated that the Lift or pull of the kite at wind window is proportional to the AoA of the kite and the L/D of a kite is inverse proportional to the AoA of a kite (AoA here means AoA within the “dominant AoA” range of 0 to around 20 degrees which is directly influenced by the built-in AoA of the kite).

  • A kite with a lower built-in center AoA has a larger wind window but can over-fly & luff easily and does not pull much at wind window (a Speed kite should have a lower built-in AoA around 0 degrees). These type of kites must have instantaneous AoA control for the kiter to prevent luffing and also for the kiter to “sheet-in” to get more power at wind window if needed.
  • A kite with higher built-in center AoA has a smaller wind window but generate more pull at wind window and hard to luff (a Tractor kite may have higher built-in AoA around 3 to 5 degrees for more pull at wind window)
  • An all-around kite may have a built-in AoA of 2 to  3 degrees.
  • Due to the upwash and the wing vortex phenomena, the built-in wingtip AoA of a kite can be 1 or 2 degrees higher than the center AoA.  The upwash effect reduces the AoA of the wingtip a bit so add 1 or 2 degrees to the wingtip AoA to counter balance that effect.
  • For inflatable and Arc, due to their geometry, the wingtip AoA varies much different than the center AoA and therefore the built-in wingtip AoA can be designed independent from the center AoA and the designer should add 1 or 2 degrees to the desired built-in AoA to counter balance the up-wash and the tip vortex effects.
Very Low AoA Low AoA Moderate AoA High AoA Very High AoA
Range (in degrees) 0- 1 2 – 3 4 5+
Kite Type Racing Speed All-around Wave Tractor (Wake Style)

Other Kite Design Fundamentals

  • Center profile should be selected for optimum lift and optimum lift/drag ratio (optimum as according to the type of kite requirements specified in the tables above)
  • Wingtip profile should be selected for maximum luff resistance (e.g., reflex profile).
  • For sled kites (Inflatable or Arc in spherical form):
    • A sled kite has similar projected surface of around 63% (2/pi or 2/3.14159) of the flat surface regardless any other parameters of the kite (AR, Tip/Center chord ratio, etc.)
    • If the wingtips are wide enough (effective tow points of the back lines are larger than 80% of center chord), one can reverse relaunch an inflatable or Arc by pulling on the back lines.
    • For LEI (using traditional airfoil), if the wingtip are wide enough and the effective tow point of the front lines is so forward (normally less than 15% of chord) that it reduces the AoA drastically, the kite will not fly on the front lines alone (100% depower)

Flat LEI

A Flat LEI has similar structure with a classic LEI except for the following differences:

  • A flatter canopy design (however most still have a deep canopy curve compared to regular foil, to take advantage of the Sled Boosting effect)
  • A bridle system consisting of a simple but somewhat elaborated bridle system for the front lines and a very simple bridle system for the back lines.  The front bridle system has multiple connection points to the leading edge to support the leading (therefore Flat LEIs are also referred to as Support Leading Edge, SLE, kites)

The canopy is more or less equivalent to the center part of the classic LEI canopy (around 3/4 of the classic LEI canopy) and the bridle system is equivalent to the sides of the classic LEI canopy (about 1/4 or 1/8 of the canopy on each side).

Besides for the differences above, a Flat LEI design should be somewhat similar to a classic LEI in theory.  It is then just a matter of properly design the canopy and the towing points via the new bridle systems.

Unfortunately current version of Surfplan does not provide full calculation and analysis of the tow points of the bridle for Flat LEI.  So in the mean time, you have to design a flat LEI with some manual processes. Also, if you are interested in flat LEI kite design, read Bruno’s Flat LEI patent application at http://www.freepatentsonline.com/20050230556.pdf and the Flat LEI section.

 

Airfoil Database

Most kite design or foil design software come with some airfoil database; however should you want more, there are other airfoil databases and one of the most extensive airfoil databases is UIUC Airfoil Coordinates Database.

Where We Are

KiteGeneration is a Kiteschool in Cagliari, Sardinia, that organizes Kitesurfing Courses and Lessons, Kite Camps in Souther Sardinia all year round.

Headoffice of KiteGeration is in the historic center of Cagliari (Address: via Giardini 15, 09127 Cagliari). Often we are not at the office because we are teaching kitesurf at the beach; please contact us for your requests, we will replay as soon as possible (usually we replay in few hours)!

Kite spots where kitesurfing lessons and services take place

Our main kite spot is Poetto beach, the beach of Cagliari,  that offer perfect conditions for all sea sports.

In any case, every day we choose the kite spot where to teach kitesurf depending on wind conditions and direction. 

In fact Sardinia is a very windy island (for more info on weather conditions in Sardinia have a look at this article) but we can’t guarantee the availability of wind always in the same kite spot. We can instead always reach a windy spot!

That is why we do something like a kite Safari: we follow the wind to different kite spots in order we can kitesurf every day! An unique experience that no other kiteschools can offer!

Depending on wind conditions, the spots where we teach kitesurf are:

 

And in the no wind days, what we will do? SUPSnorkeling and Tours!

Day 4 – Formula Kite Foil World Championship 2017 in Muscat, Oman

It was another day full of drama and excitement at the Oman Formula Kite World Championships. The favored racers were, again, at the front of the pack. Find out more, below, with news provided by Oman Sailing.

With the top fleet stacked with the world’s fastest kite racers the battles at the Formula Kite World Championships in Oman just got a lot fiercer in awesome conditions that provided a perfect stage for the riders’ supreme athleticism.

France’s Nico Parlier dominated in breezes that freshened and hovered between 9 and 11 knots for much of the day off Muscat’s Al Mouj Beach on the Gulf of Oman, framed by a dramatic mountain backdrop.

On smooth waters, Parlier was pushed all the way by his friend and countryman Axel Mazella – who managed to overhaul his rival in race one – and Britain’s Olly Bridge. Often with just metres between them, the three had thrillingly-close finishes after high-speed sub-eight minute laps of the race track.

In the women’s fleet, the reigning International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) Formula Kite World Champion Daniela Moroz, from the US, showed she is human after all when she missed out on winning two of today’s five races. The 16-year-old’s superiority on the leaderboard is so dominant however, that a second and third place, plus a hat-trick of wins, was enough to cement her top spot.

The epic day at the 2017 IKA Formula Kite World Championships, hosted by Oman Sail with associate sponsor Al Mouj Muscat, was marked by fractious drama on the water when reigning IKA Formula Kite World Champion Maxime Nocher, from Monaco, collided with a number of other riders while on port tack.

The incident, the subject of a number of protest hearings in the jury room, forced the USA’s Riley Gibbs and France’s Theo Lhostis, to withdraw from racing for the rest of the day. Nocher also changed out of his wetsuit and pulled out of the fray for the remainder of the day.

Day three of the championship saw the leading riders divided into gold, silver and bronze fleets for the two-day finals series, seeded on the basis of the opening exchanges in the qualifiers. Day five of the competition, dedicated to a medal series, will pit the top 10 men against one another for the crown and the spoils.

the basis of Parlier’s near-peerless day, riding on his biggest 19m kite, he would appear to be in the box seat for the title. At one time, Parlier struggled in lighter breezes that perhaps favoured lighter rivals, but he now appears to have mastery of all conditions.

“It’s definitely been a little bit tighter today,” said Parlier. “It’s mostly between me and Axel Mazella as usual, but now that we’re competing with Olly Bridge and some other good riders, it changes everything.”

As overnight leader, Bridge, who had been competing in a different fleet in the opening qualifying series, knew he would have his work cut out for him with the French duo in the mix. He finished in second place on the leaderboard, splitting the pair.

“It’s definitely been more difficult today,” he said. “But I’m getting better. Nico Parlier is just very, very fast. Upwind, downwind, everywhere. But with Axel Mazella, I’m quite close, so I am happy with things.”

Formula Kite Foil World Championship 2017 in Muscat, Oman
5 (100%) 4 votes

Hydrofoil Pro Tour – Australia 8-12/11/2017

Nico Parlier & Oliver Bridge 12/11/17

Nico Parlier wins the hydrofoil Pro tour! Second time in a row!

Botany Bay, Sydney, Australia

Hydrofoil Pro Tour moved to Australia, in the flat water and great wind of Botany Bay beach.

Kite Regatta, Australia
Ph. Hydrofoil Pro Tour Australia

Competition has been held from 8th to 12th November 2017 and it included the Australian Nationals from 11th to 12th November 2017

Some of  kite foilers talents from around the world took part to the competion. Four days of perfect conditions allowed the organizing committee to start 6 races everyday (24 races totally); for races replays go to: www.tractrac.com

A big news comes from Olly Bridge, that took part to the competition with the new Mike’s Lab Hydrofoil, showing its qualities. Olly already used Mike’s fin in the Extreme San Diego Foil  Invitational (19-22/10/2017) but this was the first time in the tour. It looked like he felt comfortable with new material, as he was able to shot some bullets, and as he was always extremly close to Nico.

Day 4

Olly Bridge: ”Yesterday we had a really good day again, 10 to 12 knots and athlets on 15 square meters kite, so pretty perfect condition out in the water. Today it looks pretty similar, sun is out and we are going to have a good day of racing!”

Day 3

Riley Gibbs, top rider from USA: ”Wind looking pretty pumping, similar to the first days. We are going to ride on 15 square meters kite again, probably with 13 meters line! Glad to be here in Sidney!”

At the end of the day Australian team was performing really good with 5 riders in the top 15, and 2 riders on the top 10.

Day 2

On course side”  in the second race of the day was the only mistake for Nico, as he won 5 races out of 6.

Day 1

Warm sea-breezes up around 12 knots created perfect conditions for 15 square meters kite. Nico Parlier, after five bullets: ”Wind consistent all day, a little bit shifty sometime; but that’s what makes it interesting”

For the Australian guys, day finished with Mani Bisschops sitting 7th, Andrew Cooksey 10th, Drew Malcolm 12th, Philip Rawlands 13th and Alty Frisby 14th!
