Olfrygt wins the Algal Bloom Race Sat 16 jan 2010

The Algal Bloom race is an annual event held on Gage Roads, near Fremantle (Perth WA). It was initiated 10 yeas ago when unseasonal rain, heavy nutrient loads & warm weather turned the Swan River into a huge “Algal Bloom”. The river was closed for 2 weeks to all activities for health reasons. So the river based yacht clubs banded together & held a race on the ocean instead! A pleasant 18kts breeze, 4-5’ seas, 30deg temperature – Wouldn’t you all love to be here!
