Avoiding contact with others, each 1.5 metres apart and less than 10 in the group

Thanks to Sue, she is so vigilant reminding swimmers to keep their 1.5 metres from each other, AND that the group does not exceed 10 persons as per Government Health instructions due to the rampaging Coronavirus. Media articles are also warning about the spam email articles saying this that and the other, which includes a lot of misinformation. For factual information on this deadly virus its best to refer to the following articles release by various ‘Health Authorities’. Click on the following links:

17 yr old Sammy Zustovich Mollymook Surf Club wins the Open Beach Flags

.

A highlight that must rank with the best for the entire 2020 NSW SLS titles was the win by young 17 year old Sammy Zustovich competing in the Open Beach Flags. He led all the way but the win didn’t come easy, take a close look at the 2nd placed competitor. Besides being a champion athlete, Sammy is mature beyond his years and a wonderful role model for our younger athletes.

Prior to this above pinnacle of all beach events, Sammy had won GOLD in the U/19 Beach Sprint and GOLD in the U/19 Beach Flags.

Sue filed this post on their trip to Broulee: “Five faithful swimmers headed down to beautiful Broulee for the 9th Annual Ocean Swim: Sue, Chris, Greg, Kathryn, Issi and Lena. Ken and Janice Burton joined us for morning tea with their lovely pooch. The water temperature was a pleasant 20.8 degrees although the breeze was a little cool to begin with. It was a gorgeous sunny Autumn day showcasing the beauty of this part of the South Coast.

Due to the rougher conditions the swim changed from being “Bay to Breakers” and became “Bay to Bay” , with a 1.4 km course set out in Broulee Bay. A Westpac Rescue Helicopter, RMS boat, jet skis, and various other water craft ensured the safety of all swimmers. 

Sadly, the organisers were trialling a new ankle timing system…which failed! So, no times were able to be recorded, but we are all adamant we each swam a PB!!

Despite this setback, the event was terrific, and we look forward to returning next year with a larger group of excited Mollymook swimmers”.  (Broulee photo credits, Sue)
