Abell Point Marina Airlie Beach Race Week 2013 - light conditions for 24th annual gathering on Pioneer Bay.

While temperatures are perfect for this Queensland Season of Sailing event, a little more breeze would be welcome, however for most of the week postcard sailing conditions are likely to continue.

And if you´ve not yet figured the code, that means great weather for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkelling, diving, just a little less than perfect for sailing.
