Aussies 2020 — Expression of Interest

Thursday, May 2nd, 2019

As the tem­per­a­ture cools on what has been an impres­sive sea­son for com­pe­ti­tion across all dis­ci­plines with­in the club, plan­ning is well under­way for the com­ing year.

To assist in some of the more crit­i­cal aspects of the plan­ning phase we are look­ing for Expres­sions of Inter­est from all com­peti­tors, par­ents and sup­port­ers, in all dis­ci­plines, who con­sid­er they would like to be part of Mul­laloo Surf Life Sav­ing Club’s AUSSIES 2020 ASSAULT!

There will be a gen­er­al meet­ing called lat­er in this month to dis­cuss in more detail the struc­ture and focus of the com­ing 12 months. Date and time will be advised via the club newslet­ter and social media plat­forms.

To help us mea­sure the size of The Aussies 2020 Assault please com­plete the below form and sub­mit.

What would we like to know?

Great effort from our four youth com­peti­tors at the Youth Aussies in QLD at Broad­beach on 30–31 March.

Semi-finals in youth R&R for Edie Bush­by and Sophie Mills with coach Paul Brier­ley. Big thanks to BP Work­shop Mul­laloo for their val­ued sup­port!

Tom Har­vey and Luke McChord tack­led some tough surf con­di­tions in their indi­vid­ual events, whilst no finals made – the expe­ri­ence alone – price­less!

Thanks to our ground sup­port par­ents Dara Mills, Sasha Bush­by, Lyn­da and Mark Har­vey for all their on-beach sup­port and coor­di­na­tion over the week­end.


Awe­some effort from a day­long event ear­ly in the week – Neve Macleod came 5th in the u17 Cham­pi­on Life­saver Aussie Final!!

DAY 1, Wednes­day – Edie Bush­by and Sophie Mills came 8th in the Aussies Final for the u15 First Aid. Neve Macleod got through to semi-finals in U17 female surf race. Har­ry Jones had some chal­leng­ing con­di­tions in his u19 Iron­man, not mak­ing through to finals. Tough con­di­tions, huge north­ern drift and wind squalls had most of the female and some of the u17 events can­celled this day. But a good day and team din­ner were had!

DAY 2, Thurs­day – Soraya Lee qual­i­fied for the U19 surf race final. U17 male sprints – Caleb Mills just missed out on quar­ter­fi­nals; Michael Hall came 5th in Quar­ter Finals; Aaron Gigney made it through to the Semi-Finals for Day 3.
Har­ry Jones com­pet­ed well in the u19 board race and surf race not quite mak­ing it through the rounds.
Again, poor weath­er and tough con­di­tions plagued our water com­peti­tors and the event as a whole. As a result, all females, u17 males and surf boat com­pe­ti­tion shift­ed to North Kir­ra!

DAY 3, Fri­day – Sol­id effort from our young u19 surf boat crew – Big Rigs, Tyler Nuku, Sean Coven­try, Luke Tris­ton, Isaac Crothers and Stu­art Clarke. With a 2nd and two 5ths in their rounds, not quite enough points to get through. But cer­tain­ly, claimed the wave of the day!! Well done.

Awe­some effort for our u17 beach relay team, Caleb Mills, Aaron Gigney, Michael Hall, Tyler Nuku (back­ing it up after row­ing ear­li­er in the day) – 4th in the Aussies Final lat­er in the evening.

Aaron Gigney came 7th in the u17 male sprint Aussie FINAL, what a race! Some chal­leng­ing surf con­di­tions at both Kir­ra and more so at Broad­beach this day. Neve got through 3 rounds of u17 female board races which includ­ed the semi-final – only just missed mak­ing the final. Neve had both tough con­di­tions and com­pe­ti­tion in the iron­woman, miss­ing get­ting through to the quar­ter­fi­nals. Soraya cham­pi­oned through the con­di­tions in the u19 iron­woman and just missed out on the semi-finals. Soraya then com­pet­ed in the u19 sin­gle ski miss­ing out on quar­ters. Har­ri­et Brown (u17) brushed up against some tough com­pe­ti­tion in the open ski just miss­ing out on pro­gress­ing through to the next rounds. Har­ry Jones tack­led some mon­ster waves in the u19 ski race, not pro­gress­ing to quar­ters.

DAY 4, Sat­ur­day – Soraya pro­gressed through the surf race rounds to make the surf race final on Sun­day! Soraya and Neve came 2nd in the heat for board res­cue, then in the semi, the large swell line meant poor vision and late take-off with the girls just miss­ing out on the finals. Har­ri­et hit it out with a mere 160 com­peti­tors, in some tough com­pe­ti­tion with the u17 ski miss­ing out on the quar­ter­fi­nals.

Caleb and Aaron had a few rounds of U17 flags with Tyler and Michael pro­gress­ing through sev­er­al more – some great com­pe­ti­tion! Michael also hit it up with the open com­peti­tors in flags, get­ting through a few rounds.

DAY 5, Sun­day FINAL DAY – Awe­some effort from Soraya Lee in the u19 female surf race – 12th in Aus­tralia!! There was a decent gap between the top 12 and remain­ing 18 in the final – that’s surf!!

NOTABLE MENTIONS – both these com­peti­tors are Mem­bers of Mul­laloo. Whilst we recog­nise that their com­pe­ti­tion rights are with oth­er Clubs, it is fit­ting to con­grat­u­late them on their Aussies achieve­ments. Wes Gould (Kur­rawa) – mak­ing the Final in Open Male Taplin; Semi Finals in Open iron­man, Open Ski Relay and Open Board Relay, Quar­ter Finals in Open Board. Jaime Roberts (New­port) – mak­ing Finals in both Open Female Dou­ble Ski and Open Female Mixed Dou­ble Ski; Quar­ter Final for Sin­gle Ski.

So that’s an Aussies Cam­paign wrap for 2019!

Thanks, Pete Macleod, Andrew Brown and Stu­art Clarke for man­ag­ing our Open Cham­pi­onship water com­peti­tors. Thanks to our beach coach, Carl Mills for his on tour sup­port man­ag­ing our young beachies! Thanks, Dawn Jones and Sandy Clarke for offi­ci­at­ing, Anne-Marie Wider­man­s­ki and Dara Mills for pro­vid­ing first aid at the event. Thanks to Rob­bie Payne and Josh Bull smash­ing it in the surf for our Aussies water safe­ty shifts! Thanks, Gayle Gould, Jase Bean (South Coast Surf Boats), Pete, Andrew and any­one else that assist­ed in the relo­cat­ing of craft to North Kir­ra. Thanks, Mike Gigney, Dara Mills, Lyn­da Har­vey and Jase Bean for the action shots! And last­ly, thank you to the par­ents and friends for all your sup­port!

The Aussies cam­paign for our ath­letes is a cul­mi­na­tion of their ded­i­ca­tion and deter­mi­na­tion teamed with coach­es, Club and a net­work of sup­port – we thank you all!

U15 Mixed First Aid – Edie Bush­by and Sophie Mills – Mul­laloo A. Shout out to John Tuffnell of BP Work­shop Mul­laloo for pro­vid­ing sup­port for this team who will also con­test the R&R at Aussies.

Surf Boat Interstates

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

Our Big Rigs (U19 Male: Tyler Nuku, Sean Coven­try, Luke Tris­ton, Isaac Crothers) and Neptune’s Daugh­ters (U19 Female: Elise Dag­nia, Anna Greg­son, Sophie Hum­mer­ston, Ciera Mad­den) surf boat crews com­pet­ed at the Aus­tralian Surf Row­ers League Aus­tralian Open and rep­re­sent­ed WA in the inter-State Chal­lenge on 15–17 Feb­ru­ary. They both placed 4th in their indi­vid­ual age group State v State race and com­pet­ed admirably in the youth and all cat­e­gories relay races.

On the Sat­ur­day in the Club v Club com­pe­ti­tion, Neptune’s Daugh­ters made a good show­ing but were ham­pered by a shoul­der injury.

The Big Rigs rowed excep­tion­al­ly well to make it through to the Sun­day knock out series but a bout of gas­tro for three of the row­ers meant they bare­ly made it to the start line and ‘gassed out’ by the gate cans in their first elim­i­na­tion round. Both crews showed their high qual­i­ty wave skills in what was again an epic swell at Elouera Beach NSW.

Shout out to Louise Nuku, Gail Tris­ton and Sophie Hum­mer­ston in organ­is­ing the vari­ety of fundrais­ing efforts that the crews have been involved in.

Thanks to the North Cottes­loe and City of Perth crews for their sup­port on the beach shift­ing boats – great cama­raderie! Thanks to the par­ents for the sup­port on and off the beach also!

Thanks to the Club for their sup­port of these fine young row­ers who exem­pli­fied Club pride through­out the tour. Thank you Stu­art Clarke who coached, swept and guid­ed both the crews through­out the sea­son.
