Wanda SLSC recorded a decisive win in the overall pointscore at the NSW Pool Rescue Championships

Wanda SLSC recorded a decisive win in the overall pointscore at the NSW Pool Rescue Championships at Woy Woy on the weekend.

Title holder Ocean Beach was eclipsed by the performances of the Wanda competitors, including Jessica Lauricella, Jay Furniss, Nicholas Brooks, Alex Clarke and Danielle McMahon. Ocean Beach slipped to equal fourth position despite wins by Keelan Bridge and the Gasparotto sisters.

Terrigal retained second place again this year with great performances by Lauren Hall, Karlee Nurthern, Rachelle King and Ed Gourley.

Cronulla’s third place was well deserved, thanks to good efforts by Lana Rogers, Kyle Druery, Chris Allum and Aaron Markey.

Bulli managed equal fourth largely due to Ryan O’Grady, Downie Langthorne and Sean White.

Hunter clubs Redhead and Swansea Belmont ended up sixth and eighth respectively. Emily Chaffey, Sjana Earp and Kurtis Kavanagh from Swansea Belmont and Redhead’s Jessica Collins recorded good times in their events.

Far North Coast clubs taking part in pool rescue competition for the first time managed to make it into the top 20. Byron’s Josh Brown and Callum Smith from Cudgen Headland were able to hold their own against more experienced competitors.

“Pool rescue is big on the international watersports stage and more of our home grown surf athletes are getting involved,” explained Manager of Surf Sports, Chris Parker. “It offers athletes more opportunities for national and international team selection, both in pool and surf events.”

The Championships include obstacle swims, manikin carries, line throws, medley relays and simulated emergency response competition. The events are great for honing the surf rescue skills of our top athletes, who are all volunteer surf lifesavers.

Pool rescue skills are not only important for saving lives in the surf but this competition was also great preparation for the upcoming World Surf Life Saving titles in Egypt next month.
