Brett Goodwin has clinched the third stage of the 2013/2014 NSW Wavesailing Tour, held at Gerroa.
The event was scheduled for Wanda Beach, but the waves were closing out and overall conditions were too extreme, leaving the beach break unsailable.
Gerroa would provide slightly smaller, more manageable waves and better winds. Nevertheless, getting out was a difficult task, with the large swell and a gusty cross-off wind making it tricky to get through the break.
