Following a week of heavy rainfall, the sun shone in all its splendor on Sat February 4, at Shellharbour for the holding of the 2012 South Coast branch Surf Life Saving championships.
Not only did the sun shine, so too did the Mollymook surf club competitors who won numerous races. Perhaps the most exciting win was by the Under 15 board relay team. Led by Angus Curry, he set up a nice lead during the first leg followed by Holly Munday who was up against the boys. Holly paddled her heart out, caught and rode a nice wave to maintain the lead for Lewis Betts to maintain throughout the 3rd leg to come home easy winners. Great individual efforts were also recorded by Tarryn Love winning the U 15 beach sprint and flags, Michelle Howard in the U 17 & open female beach sprint, Angus Curry 1st in the U 15 board race, Tony Ireland Over 30’s board race & Ken Banks in the Over 50’s iron man and surf race.
Team events saw Mollymook home first in the March Past, 1st in the Taplin (Tony Ireland, Keith Purves & Greg Stratford), 1st in the Ski relay (Tony Ireland, Paul Burton & Greg Stratford)
A full list of result will appear in the local Times paper on Wednesday courtesy of Tracy Betts and Tony Ireland.
