Sunset Young Guns - Two Silver Medals - Ohope Beach 20th March 2016
Sunset Young Guns were so close to a Gold medal with 1st equal in the u19 Surf Boat Long Course event at Ohope Beach. Only countback gave Titahi Bay the Gold. Sunset Young Guns were however presented Gold for their efforts in the NZ Surf Boat Series and the Hipsters received a bronze medal. Huge effort for the Hipsters considering first year rowing together.
The Sunset Young Guns earned Silver Medal in the Short and Long Course events in very testing conditions that at times had us wondering if they were going to cancel racing in the afternoon. Congratulations to Ted and Mikey who kept the boys safe with some amazing sweeping of the boats out to the bouys and back. Check out photos from the event on our facebook page.
