Nippers create their own Tsunami waves

WE HAVE had rains, floods, winds and fires... any sort of weather you could think of.

But Hughie dialled up a curve ball for us on Sunday with, of all things, a Tsunami warning.

However, in true Broadway style, the show did go on.

The Tsunami was nothing compared to the waves created by our nippers.

Everyone managed to have a great day despite the circumstances.

In fact it was a cracker of a day for the beach, with the sun shining and a very warm current making the water very inviting for the junior competitors.

A big thank you must be extended to the bronze squad who interrupted their scheduled training to show our nippers all about resuscitation and defibrillation.

The kids were all very instructed and took away some valuable learning experiences about safety, which is the most important lesson they can be taught in regards to the water.

We are now looking towards the end of the season with our final club championship day in two week’s time on March 14.

We are expecting some very good results to come out of this event with everyone in full training.

Our presentation day will then follow on Sunday, March 21. We would also like to remind all those with perpetual trophies to please return them to us on or before our next activity day so we can have them ready to go. So until next time, stay safe on the beach.
