2016-2017 Packery Channel Open Wrap Up

October 15-16 2016

Full results and season standings will be posted ASAP!

Packery Channel Open turned out to be a beautiful weekend! Contest was held at the North Packery Channel with the north jetty giving some solid wind protection and some fun waves! Saturday brought in 2-3ft swell, bit sloppy in the morning and cleaned up nicely as the day went on. Sunday was similar with a bit less size. The weather was just perfect! Temp in the 80s, partly cloudy, winds at SSE/SE 8-12mph both days and clear beautiful blue water! All competitors shredded and had fun!

Here is one shot that will go into the scrapbook….(btw no interference, these two caught waves far apart and ended up in eachothers tracks)!
