Sunset Beach Surf Boat crews could only stand and watch as the huge surf at Waihi Beach was relentless. The only crews to race were the open men's and much later in the day, one final race for 7 women's crews. Yes, they were disappointed but we're happy they're all safe and unharmed. Series medals were decided on points from the last 3 series. Congratulations to 'The Young Guns', Gold medal for winning the U23 Men's Surf Boat Series. Congrats also to the Sunset Hipsters who take out Silver Medal in the U19 Men's.  It will be back to the beach Sunday for the Sunset Young Guns who will be representing Northern Region in the Surf Life Saving NZ Regional Surf Boat Challenge. Surf is predicted to be better. Whew!!
