Congratulations to Tee, the deserving winner of the Rubber Ducky Award. Tee, truly shone during the Round 3 Carnival at Bulli, displaying exemplary teamwork and dedication.
Throughout the weekend’s races, Tee demonstrated unparalleled skill and agility as our Super Star Handler & Wrangler. Despite the daunting shore dumps that tested our abilities, he fearlessly took charge, ensuring the smooth operation of our boats on the line. Without his expert handling, the launches could have turned into disastrous situations.
But Tee’s contributions didn’t end there. With boundless energy and unwavering commitment, he tirelessly assisted in bringing boats to the line. This thankless and challenging task was handled with utmost grace and determination, showcasing his selflessness and commitment to the team’s success.
Beyond his remarkable skills, Tee’s large and friendly presence has endeared him to everyone on the team. His positive and enthusiastic attitude has brought an extra layer of camaraderie and joy to our racing endeavors. Tee truly embodies the spirit of sportsmanship and teamwork, making him an invaluable asset to the IRB Racing Team.
Congratulations once again to Tee on his well-deserved award. Your remarkable performance and unwavering dedication have earned you the admiration and respect of the entire Bondi IRB racing team. We look forward to witnessing your continued success and achievements in the world of IRB racing. Keep up the fantastic work, Tee!
