Cyclone Bondi hits Queensland - Aussies 2017

The mighty Queensland clubs, in particular Northcliffe, Alexandra Headland, and North Burleigh have been left in shock this week after the Bondi Masters Team won the overall national point score at North Kirra beach on the Gold Coast. In one of the most perfectly executed master plans, Team Bondi competitors exceeded expectation – bringing home 24 gold, 11 silver, and 11 bronze medals – and have dominated the powerhouse clubs of Queensland in their own back yard.

With the involvement of so many over a long season it would be impossible to name all those who have contributed to this result. The club thanks all who have been involved, and in due course hopes to recognise all those who have chipped in.

Please find below a list of Gold, Silver and Bronze medallists. More extensive results can be found at the Aussies 2017 website.

Aussies 2018 are at Scarborough Beach, Western Australia from 14 April to 22 April. Save the date and come join the team.
