P Class Nationals descended…

R0019452

on Nelson last week….

….and according to the Nelson Mail 8th Jan 2013

Earlier, the young sailors in the P Class national yachting championship had also been hit by the storm. The little yachts race well out in Tasman Bay and Captain Duncan said they enjoyed several hours of perfect conditions before the wind "suddenly blew up" to 38 knots (70kmh) during the last race.

….some challenging conditions indeed.
