Bondi Surf Race Report
Week 31 – 22nd April 2018
Another day on patrol at the beach, with a great group of patrolling members, who had to work hard to keep the beach safe. And at the same time they helped with setting a near perfect course, kept the board’s way & provided extra water safety, a great team effort.
Next week is our last race of the season & let’s make it a big one. It will be the last time I can hide behind Raewyn & the last time, she will mark you off for starting & finishing. Peter & Raewyn will be moving to sunny Newcastle during the off season & as friends & help mates, they will be sorely missed.
ILouise has not done badly this season & in the small swell, used the cross currents judiciously to beat out a younger Anthony who always tries his hardest, with Oliver not that far behind. Martin hobbled out of the surf & finished fourth & I believe to improve his running, is having a knee replacement in the next couple of weeks. We wish him well & back into the swim of things in the near future.
Another good race with a cluster of swimmers all in contention. Chris was just a little too good. Bruce, who seems to be always in the leading group, came in a strong second, just edging out Allison with a very youthful sprint up the beach.
Anthony finished his last Cadet swim, where he started, a winner. Well done!
Again, come on, let’s all get down whilst this wonderful weather lasts & celebrate a great season of good racing in a benign season, with your fellow Clubbies.
Don’t missing anything.
