2014 Australian Titles in Perth!

Well done to our three club members, Bryanna Bisset, Jack Wells & Nic Schulz  who competed at Aussies this year.
They all did really well, with each one coming away with personal bests for this event.
The conditions on Monday and Tuesday were very average to say the least, but by the time Miss B arrived in Perth, conditions were perfect for her ski event where she finished in 11th place in her heat. Other highlights were Jack making it through to the semis in the swim, and Nic to the quarters in the board race.
Thanks to all the supporters and coaches and those from other clubs who provided assistance to our team on the beach.

Members Draw!

The members draw will be this Friday the 11th of April between 6:30 – 7:30pm. The money up for grabs is back to $50, see you there!

New Website!

We are pleased to announce the release of our new Semaphore SLSC website!

This new format will allow for a more interactive and continuously updated website that should become your number one place to find any information regarding Juniors, Seniors, Training, Patrol, Events and much much more!

We chose to release this new website during the off season so that we are able to determine and fix any issues that might arise in the early stages but also so that we can head into the 2014/15 season fully prepared with a whole new approach to communication!

A weekly bulletin will continue to be sent weekly, however will contain all the information that has been uploaded onto the website and will have links that will redirect you to the website.

This is a new process for all of us so please bear with us as we continue to fine tune the process.

If you notice any issues or have any feedback with the new website please email them to or feel free to contact me at or on 0408 841 160. After all this website is designed to be as user friendly and informative as possible for both club members and the general public.

Finally a huge thank you to our very own Semaphore Member Rhys Moult who put endless amounts of work into building and designing this new website, it is an incredible achievement and we just cannot thank you enough!

Thanks for your cooperation!
