Bondi Surf Race Report

Week 4- 14 October 2018

Fellow Surfers’,

Another challenging morning, where it was touch & go. I thought back to the sixty’s & asked would the surfboat under Beachy’s sweeping got out & the answer was yes, so I decided in conjunction with the Patrol Captain, to run the race. If I was using Silent as the yard stick we would never cancel a race. It was good to see him at bottles on Sunday night & reminisce about the Junior B boat crew of 67/8.

It was great to continue to have new starters & special mention of the Oates; Tom & Jess, who I put in A Grade at go & they came in first & second respectfully. As time trailers, for their efforts, they will be off at a more respectable handicap, to reflect their amasing talent as Cadet swimmers. This allowed past Captain & R&R Champion & all-round nice guy Brook to get the honour’s ahead of younger gun Mark , with newcomer Juliann in her first season of Club racing. Due to the heavy unpredictable large waves, it was to say the least a challenging race, in warmer water, from the last few weeks.

B Grade saw a good group of Bronzes, joining in for the first time & Jana from Nippers who finished well up in the scatters competitors. Jonathon, just beat Patti up the beach & her racing with Bondi Amateur’s on a Sunday morning stood her in good stead. Lenseman extraordinaire Bruce was not that far behind & we look forward to his photos throughout the season.

Our three Cadets were all first timers & they have each been given 2 points for their efforts.
