2016 sees the same easy- to- follow rules!

  1. The Brass Monkey will be fought out between the Southerly Busters and any Victorian GPS Teams.  The home game will be a beach designated by the team eg Swan Bay for the Connewarre Cremasters, etc
  2. There will be NO entry fee per competitors   Participants must be paid up IWC members.
  3. To register your entry, drop an email to the event organiser- Mick Green.  In the email body outline your team and a mobile contact.
  4. Away game is 75km from home beach
  5. Formula will be PEAK SPEED (in KNOTS) minus AVERAGE AIR TEMP (in ‘C) divided by AVERAGE WIND SPEED (in KNOTS)
    PEAK SPEED is 2 second peak
    AIR TEMP is average air temperature during the time of your session, based on the closest weather station to your location
    AVERAGE WIND SPEED is the average of peak/ strongest wind gusts during the time of your session, based on the closest weather station to your location.
