Extremely wet conditions were what faced the competitors at Waipu Cove for the BP Surf Live Saving North Island IRB Championships. The rain was relentless and heavy through to about 2pm when we had some break in the weather… it didn’t stop the racing in these testing conditions. Sunset Beach had 10 teams competing and all teams performed well to add points to the 139 total to put Sunset Beach in 1st place, 50 points ahead of East End on 89 points.
Class Act! Taylor Shrimpton and Jemima Ferrier were unbeatable today with 5 gold medals. Other notable performances were Senior Mens - Shane and Mark Edwards who were on the podium for all of their races with 3 silver and 2 bronze medals. U22 Mens – Judd Redmond and Anton Baptist raced extremely well for 1 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze medal.
Sunset Beach Lifeguard Service were proud of the performance of our teams for what was a long hard day at the beach and retaining the title for the 3rd year running – Top Club, North Island IRB Championships.
