Ocean Series - boats & skis
A few of our members have been racing in the Ocean Series presented by Surf LIfe Saving Sydney Northern Beaches.
The series is about long distance racing (10kms-20kms) involving surf skis, ocean racing skis & surf boats.
There has been a couple of rounds conducted so far with Hannahn Minogue (1st & 3rd) sitting pretty good overall in the Open Women's Ocean Racing Skis category.
Sean White finished 3rd in the Open Surf Ski category race at Long Reef recently.
Our masters guys (Ian Timbrell & Michael Locke) have both had a win in the 40-49yrs Male Ocean Racing Skis category in the 2 legs so far (Long Reef & Watsons Bay).
Our boats also had a hit out in the Bondi Beach to Watsons Bay Hotel race (12kms) on the weekend. 2 Open Male crews & a Vets Male crew placed 2nd, 4th & 2nd respectively.
The crews were A Crew (Pauul Jones-Dean Roberts-Heath Mercer-Ben Lowe-Dan Porra), B Crew (Lincoln Costello-Paul Barlow-Mitchell Roberts-Matt Roodenrys-Adam Barlow) & Vets (Shane Geloven-Rod Mercer-Chris Mercer-Glen McMillan-Darren Nicholls).
