Report by Steve Farthing
WORLDS Day 1 - Saturday 5th September 2009

Wouldn't you know it, first day of competition and the SE winds pick up, making the waves a choppy and unpredictable although still around the 3 foot mark. Round 1 of the open qualifiers and Masters was run, no major upsets and no eliminations as repercharges will be run tomorrow. Justine Guillaume from Guadeloupe was a standout with one of the highest heat scores but again the conditions were challenging.

Looking forward to better conditions tomorrow keep checking the results and photos. Until tomorrow you know the saying "Let go Bananas"
