Seniors Weekly report

Robe Carnival:

The senior group has Tarooki Campsite booked for the Robe carnival on the 11th and 12th of February.  Taroorki is a 72 bed bunkhouse comprising of 7 bunk rooms and 4 double ensuite rooms (single beds). It also has a professional kitchen,  cool  room and hall. Cost is $27/person/night. Any club members are welcome to join the senior comp group for a great weekend away.

State team selection:

Two of our competitors have been selected to represent the state at the Interstate Championships on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Congratulations to Nic Schulz and Connor Tunbridge who will be proudly wearing the Semaphore cap in Queensland from January 20. The Senior comp group is very proud of you both as I’m sure the whole club is. We know you will perform at your very best and represent your club and state to the best of your ability. Good luck from all of us.


New Boat captain:

With the recent resignation of Aaron Low as boat captain Steve Simms has stepped up to fill the role for the remainder of the season. Aaron has also stepped down as club sweep. Marty Davidson will be sweeping at carnivals with Paul Johnstone assisting with training duties.

Steve (Simsy) Simms has called a meeting for all crews and individuals to discuss the way ahead for the remainder of the season. The meeting will be on Saturday 14th Jan at 4.00 pm at the club. Please attend if you can.

I would also like to thank Aaron for his incredible efforts over the past few years. Your drive and passion will be missed.


Middleton Carnival:

Middleton beach really turned it on last Sunday with surf in the 2 to 3 foot range on the sets. We had a strong contingent of male competitors in all age groups bar masters and  one  female competitor. It would be great to see some more girls competing at the next carnival. Having said that the U23 woman boat crew performed very well in strong surf conditions with new sweep Marty D. The girls secured 3rd at the completion of 5 tough races. Great effort girls, I really think you are in contention for a medal at states.

Many thanks to our officials and water cover who attended. Without these people we would not be unable to compete or the carnival be held.


Upcoming events:

8@8 Ski racing 14th January at Brighton (8am) see Ocean paddling facebook page

West beach pink and blue swim 21 January

Champ lifesaver/Champ patrol 4th February Southport
