Action at Etchells Pre-Worlds
Zhik Etchells Pre-Worlds on Godszone, bright sunshine in the morning then the sun disappears, as the thunderstorms roll in, it's getting like Ground Hog Day.

A wide open Australian Etchells Championship regatta up on the Pittwater circle, with unusually light condtions offshore.
A total of 16 boats were black flagged on Day 3 of the yesterday. A long day on the water, six attempts to get two races away and thunderstorms for the third day in a row. We have some interesting photos from yesterday's sailing.

There are thunderstorms on the ranges ashore right now, so it looks like more of the same.
We are looking forward to the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron run Etchells Worlds which start next Monday on the Manly circle. Some great teams and a very tight event is expected. We have been talking to lots of the top sailors and will run our main pre-view tomorrow.
Today we feature an Australian marine industry icon, GME has been manufacturing in Sydney for 50+ years. They are a world leader in EPIRBS, having been making them for an unbelievable 35 years.
Lots of interesting news today ... get amongst it.
