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.
