Masters State Titles


What an exciting weekend for the Masters Rowers with the State carnival held on Saturday at Aldinga Beach. A reasonably calm day with a little bubble from the gate can to shore.  Semaphore had six teams in with Excellent results.  Thanks again to Simsy for directing us on the beach and keeping us heading in the right direction, and organising team Shirts from EzyFit, our major sponsor in the boats section.


The AngryBirds (F 160+ Donna, Tracy, Louise & Kirsty) got a silver medal narrowly missing out on gold with their arch rivals for the day Port Elliot.  This is the first Female rowing medal for Semaphore “ever”– Fantastic effort from the ladies.


The Jacco’s (M160+ Johno, Craig A, Craig L, & Owen) cracked their Gold this year which now gives them the complete medal set after three years. Tight racing with Somerton giving them a very hard time.


The Trog’s (M220+ Mainy,Weiry,Mick & Stephen) recovered well from the first race to salvage a bronze from two strong seconds in the 2nd and 3rd races. Well done.


The Marty team (F120+ Marty,Dale,Browny & Aaron) Managed to come away with Gold from their first training session for the year. This makes it an excellent representation from Semaphore.


The Undecideds (F180+ – Jackie,Debb,Claire & Heather) had a great race day coming home in the middle of the pack all day. Excellent effort for their first year of rowing.


The Bizzalloys (M180+ The president, Mick L, Richard, & Barts) drew  the short straw with the most heavily contested division. After their extensive training session they represented Semaphore well. Great effort guys.


So an excellent effort from the Boaties in state masters.

Ladies! It’s your time to shine

dl_invitation_template-image-003Ladies it is your time to shine. Surf Life Saving SA has introduced their #surfsisterslevelup social media campaign. This campaign is designed encourage and motivate SA women to get involved or enrich their experience in Surf Lifesaving and take it to the next level.

Anyone can level up and you can choose to level up in any way that suits you.

For example; A Nipper Mum might want to do her Bronze Medallion, a Beachie might want to have a crack at rowing boats, you might do the next level up in your first aid training or put your hand up for a leadership role at your club or decide to start your journey as a coach or an official.
click on the links below for some inspiration and opportunities to level up this season!
