Hey Peter Heywood,
Let's not scare people too much. Sure Port Phillip gets up, but we do have wind limits and the PRO would have the AP ready if not flying on the pole.
Over the course of a regatta we could have anything from a light drifter, sunny 5-10 knots, glorious 10-15 knots, and testers to 20-22 with gusts and fantastic surfing and climbing up the back of or around the wave in front.
There will be something for everyone, and everyone will be smiling :-). Isn't that why we have drops over the course of the regatta, for the light weights in a blow, and the heavy weights when the breeze is light?
And yes, I do plan to be practicing regularly at BRYC (Block Rock) in the months before the regatta. At 75kg, I'll be sticking to my (7) rig across the full wind range.

Looks like a fresh, but not unusual, Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne to me - and I've sailed there a lot.
Wave and wind training at Lymington!
The Lymington RS Aeros were out preparing for whatever Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne, might kick up in the afternoon breezes. Lots of fun working to understand how to effectively sail through waves in the higher wind ranges and thus extend competitive limits.
We were all buzzing when we got back ashore - More fun practices to come!
RS AERO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Melbourne, VIC, Australia 28th Dec 2019 - 4th Jan 2020

The 2019 RS Aero World Championship visits Port Phillip Bay, Australia!
Sunshine, sea breezes, great racing and a wonderful new year break!
Black Rock YC have an excellent record of hosting major championships, holding both the Australian OK and Finn Championships consecutively earlier this year. World Championships are regularly hosted at the club including several OK Worlds and Finn Gold Cups over the years.
The racing on Port Phillip Bay is world class and one of Australia's prime regatta venues. A good variety of racing conditions is likely with a range of both wind strength and sea state providing an interesting challenge. Sea breezes can build through the day and the size of the bay allows a good swell to build up – perfect for surfing those RS Aeros!
Situated in the picturesque Half Moon Bay there is a sheltered beach for launching that is ideal for families to relax in the sun. The Cerberus Beach House Cafe next door offers both fine dining and take away fish and chips – take your pick!
