It is said that if you don't like the weather in Melbourne you just have to wait a few hours for something different. The week of the Australian 5O5 Nationals was held in classic Melbourne weather. There were temperatures in the high 30s, cold 25 knot winds, beautiful sunshine, torrential rain, hail storms, light winds and perfect 8-15 knot winds. In the end 8 of the scheduled 9 heats were completed. The event was won by Americans Mike Holt & Rob Woelfel with Australians Robin Duessen and David Snoad finishing second to become the 2020 Australian Champions.1st Mike Holt & Rob Woelfel (USA)
