No Lives Lost at Bondi Beach


The IRB team hit the road on Friday and started the series off with scrutineering.
The amazing volunteers including our very own Jamie Vueti help scrutineer all teams gear for many hours on the Friday to ensure everyone’s craft and equipment meet regulations.
Saturday morning the team hit the water with guns up at 8am.
Two solid days of racing with our teams navigating the day through heats, quarters, semis and onto finals.
The teams made 6 finals and this included the Open Relay.
The Open Relay consists of every single event rolled into one race requiring 16 athletes plus a patient boat driver.
Its a fast, exciting and skilled race of endurance and team work.
Our team shone and finished with a clean race and no disqualifications landing them in 4th position.
Was the highlight of the State Championships for our team.
Bondi overall point score finished us in 13th position at State Championships 2023
