Brunswick Surf Life Saving Club hosted the annual Masters Surf Life Saving Competition in late February and finished in second place.

Twenty teams and 101 competitors from clubs as far south as Tasmania took part in the Masters competition, where competitors had the chance to participate in a range of disciplines from single ski, board racing, and beach sprints right through to iron man/woman, club spokesman Guy Knox said.

‘Masters compete in the full range of surf life saving events,’ he said.

The top three clubs in the Masters Competition were: Palm Beach (217 points), Brunswick (119) and Surfers Paradise (114).

Sarah Perira from Palm Beach SLSC was the winner of the Con Asmussen Trophy.

Age Champions

In the 2017 NSW Surf Life Saving Age Championships held in Port Macquarie over the weekend Cudgen Headland finished in sixteenth place ahead of  Lennox Head-Alstonville in 18th position, in a field of close to 60 clubs from across the state.

A standout performer for Cudgen Headland was Olissa Onley, who finished second in the U/13s board race.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
