SWA: “Congratulations on your win here in Rhosneigr Tom, how did it feel to get your first win on the SWA?”
Tom Bennett-Lloyd: “Thanks! I’ve not done much windsurfing recently so it was great to know I’ve still got it in me, especially as everyone was sailing really well!”
SWA: “How did you find conditions out there? What do you feel was the secret to your success?”
Tom: “It was great fun! I really like port-tack cross-on, it wasn’t the easiest conditions to get a good score though, and there were some big lulls so it was pretty hard to stay upwind! I found it pretty hard to pick out a wave that would hold up for more than one turn so a bit of local knowledge certainly helps. Also, thanks to everyone that got involved and all the volunteers that make these events happen! It’s great to see so many people keen for wavesailing!”
