Congratulations to our IRB Racing Team

State IRB Champion Club back to Mullaloo for the 3rd year in a row!!

Sun­day 23 June was rainy and cloudy as expect­ed, which led to a change in loca­tion from our home beach to Sor­ren­to, but nev­er­the­less, we achieved some great results.  

Our club won medals in every race, took out the WA IRB Rac­ing Cham­pi­onships Cham­pi­on Club 2019 and won the Dave Clark Shield for best over­all male crew for the whole sea­son!  Spe­cial men­tion goes to Megan Bul­ley… com­pet­ing in and win­ning a medal in every sin­gle race that was run on the day.

A MASSSIVE THANK YOU to our set up crew (includ­ing boat­ies Stu Clarke, Ter­ry Upston, Steve Part, Mar­tin Fisk) to our pack up crew includ­ing the won­der­ful Carl Mills and his beachie team (Amy Hon­or, Soraya Lee, Aaron Gigney, Mar­tyn Pigg, Leah Mar­tin and Mitch Eady), to all our won­der­ful sup­port­ers, sausage siz­zle mak­ers, soup providers, First Aiders (Natal­ie God­win, Gle­nis Pear­son, Karen Pahlow), Guy Edwards and Jack­ie McGre­gor, huge thanks for the effort in set­ting up then stay­ing on as judge in boats!), pho­tog­ra­phers, cheer squad and coach­es! 

A very spe­cial thank you to our reg­u­lar vol­un­teers Rus­sell Gould and Andre Villemin in the patient boat as well as Lau­rie de Mamiel, Robyn Bul­ley and Julie Rap­ley help­ing organ­ise mar­shalling of patients, crews and dri­vers as well as our offi­cials Sandy Clarke, Vic­ki Ras­mussen, Jes­per Ras­mussen, Dawn Jones and our ever-vig­i­lant ESO Mark Hills. Also a shout out to Aussies 2020 Assault fundrais­ing team for pro­vid­ing burg­ers and sausage siz­zle for all the com­peti­tors. 

Thanks also to the amaz­ing Fresh Fron­tier, Club spon­sor, for the dona­tion of soup and sal­ads for our offi­cials lunch and also sal­ad for the burg­ers.

A suc­cess­ful sea­son for our IRB team­mates that couldn’t have been achieved with­out the sup­port and help from all oth­er aspects of the club!

And final­ly, good luck to those com­pet­ing in the State team and Nation­als over in Kingscliff in 2 weeks!
