After postponing this Marathon for 5 weekends, we finally had the conditions we needed. The cooler, wet forecast put a few off, but 7 brave sailors were rewarded with some great sailing today. We normally run a 50km and 100km marathon concurrently, but because of the low numbers and pending bad weather later, we settled on one 50km Race. The odd shower came through to cool them off and test their fortitude. The beach was reasonably clean and sailing was in 27 – 39 kmh NNW wind. This meant a bit if tacking going North, then speed runs of up to 70 km/h going South.

The annual Landsailing Kapiti Waikanae Beach 50km Endurance race was a great success yesterday. The marathon event was run in almost perfect conditions with a clean beach and 20-30km NW wind. The winners completing the 50km in 1 hour and 10 minutes.
