It’s what you expect at the NRAA King’s Prize – it’s tough and the winners are certainly going to fight for their position in history. After days of challenging winds, we arrived to the Duncan Range with flags standing still beside the flagpoles. But we knew that was not going to continue. As the morning progressed, conditions have become considerably more changeable and difficult for our competitors.
