Laurence Carey has sailed to victory at the Wellington Slalom Plus 2013, held in the capital of New Zealand.
With 26 experienced windsurfers and 55 knots of wind, there were two intense days of slalom racing off Eastbourne, Wellington.
In the first day, winds blew in excess of the predicted 50 knots - gusts of nearly 60 knots were recorded. Most sailors went out on their smallest wave sailing boards and sails to take advantage of the conditions, which were too extreme for the specialised racing gear they normally used.
