Three way tie for Club Open Champs

posted 15 Oct 2014, 11:55 by Ross Halfpenny
A week after the handicap champs saw club members return for some fast and furious racing with no advantage sought or given. There were separate Men’s and Women’s races over 4 events: 

Beach Sprint, Surf Race, Board Race and Beach flags. Each event was awarded points from 16 for first place, with a reduction of one for each subsequent place. 

In the Beach Sprint over approximately 80 metres, Lucy got top spot, followed by Emmie and Pam for the Ladies and in the Gents race Gabe drew ahead of Dave and Josh. The swim saw Pam come out on top for the Girls and Josh for the Boys, while the board race had Dave on his race board 
arrive ahead of Josh on an old club rescue board. The points score was super tight going into the final event: the Beach Flags, where Lucy pipped Emmie to top spot and Gabe pushed out Dave in an exciting final. 

The points total had Emmie, Lucy and Gabe all on 61 points to be crowned joint champs for 2014.
