Shallow Inlet near Sandy Point (view above is from Mt Best, some
32km away) is a world-famous local spot for high speed sailing.
Flat water and strong winds attract some of the fastest sailors
in the world.
Speed windsurfing photos below were taken on 28 January 2007 by
Adam Gerlach record typical speed sailing action at Sandy Point.
The session featured Tony Wynhoven 45 knot average, Chris Lockwood
45.2 knot 500m and Craig Spottiswood getting into 2007 top 10
using a sticky-tape repaired KA sail, among many other good results.
