Sunset Beach had 9 teams competing at the Northern Region IRB Championships today. The racing was fast and furious with a lot of the races being straight finals except for the U22 Men’s Races. Sunset Beach retained their Top Northern Region Title with 77 points, 55 points clear of 2nd place Mairangi Bay on 22 points.
Sunset Beach’s Senior Men’s teams were the best performers on the day. The Edwards brothers, Shane and Mark won 4 gold medals, chased hard by Lewis Powell and Hogan Shrimpton. They then combined to win the Open Teams race. In the women’s, Taylor Shrimpton and Jemima Ferrier had some close racing with the St Clair team but were the winners with 3 gold and a silver.
Judd Redmond and Jhett Hunt earned themselves 3 gold medals in the U22 Men’s, hottly contested by the Mairangi Bay crews.
