Branch Championships: Board & Ski

Coogee’s Board & Ski team of 11 made their way to Maroubra for the Annual Sydney Branch Championships. In favourable smooth 1-2 foot NE swell conditions made racing for all competitors interesting while adding tricky banks and waves as the tide dropped into the challenge.

Overall performances where extremely pleasing with the team racing home with three Gold, five Silver and two Bronze medals, also with a number of top-six finishes. First time for many years Coogee had an Open Women competitor, Line Lauridsen, who came to us via Denmark National Team. Line will be with Coogee right through to the Australian Championships.

Coogee stamped its reputation on Saturday as a force to consider as a number of our results out classing the more fancied teams from Bate Bay.

We now turn our focus towards NSW State championships with great expectations but, there is still plenty of fun to have beforehand.
