Surf club winds up season



YAMBA Surf Club will mark the close of the 2004-2005 competitive season, with its annual club championships and inter-patrol competition carnival tomorrow.

Competition will start at 9.30am with the running of the rescue tube championship in eight divisions, four for males and four for females.

It will be followed by a full program of events in the surf and on the beach.

These will include the surf race, which carries the George Mills trophy for the ultimate open winner.

The surf race will be contested in the largest number of divisions, Under-15, -17, -19, open, Over-24, -30, -40, -50 and -60, again in male and female sections.

Main events will be the iron man and iron woman championships.

Expected to be prominent are the club's two state champions, Alyce Bennett and Jacob Lollback.

Bennett's recent performances have been highlighted by a win in the NSW Under-19 iron woman title and Lollback took out the NSW Under-17 iron man title, both also faring well in last weekend's Australian titles at Kurrawa beach in Queensland.
