At last weekend’s 'Bruce Thoroughgood' Young Guns Event at Ocean Beach the new crew was 4th in the final of the Under 23 Male. This is a Young Guns event, featuring only Under 19 and Under 23 Surf Boat Crews. The even has now been run for 4 years and we continue to support it. The crew is Cliff Gerathy Sweep, Anders Huxtable, Mitch Hogan, James Wright and Mark Chaloner

 

Congratulations to the Squad that successfully completed their Bronze Medallion last weekend. They were Julie Hodges, Annabel Braithwaite-Young, Leighton Howard, Christine Maniaty, Kevin Tiller and Matthew Young.

It was a perfect beach day with a small wave rolling in and good water conditions the sun even came out for part of the assessment, the trainers were Wayne Vaughan who organised the nipper parents to undertake the Bronze and Gary Daly who assisted. All except one have children in Burning Palms nippers.
