Headed by WA food ambassador Don Hancey, the intimate gathering of guests was treated to a meal that beautifully represented WA’s produce.
“This year’s inaugural Lancelin Lobster Brunch was a fantastic celebration of some of the wide variety of fresh and tasty produce from the Gingin area,” Mr Hancey said.
“The many locals who attended the brunch said it was extremely good value and by far the best lobster brunch that can be found in the whole of WA.”
Western rock lobster, caught by the Geraldton Fishermen’s Co-op seasoned with Lake Deborah natural salt, was served with salad sourced from Gingin and Neerabup farmers and accompanied by generous portions of New Norcia Bakery bread.
Complementing the meal perfectly were a fruity chardonnay from Mount Barker vineyard Chatsfield, ginger and mango beers from Broome’s Matso’s Brewery, and cold-pressed juices from Michael Brothers.
The hot, humid day soon welcomed the much-needed south-westerly winds for the races in the afternoon, all of which were postponed until Sunday because of unexpected weather conditions.
UK’s Olly Bridge nabbed first place in the kitesurfing marathon against tough competition and was the first athlete overall to complete the 25km distance between Ledge Point and Lancelin.
France’s Cyril Moussilmani took first place in the windsurfing marathon ahead of last year’s winner, Steve Allen, who finished second.
Female world windsurfing speed record-holder Karin Jaggi, from Switzerland, was the first woman to cross the line.
