The Brunswick SLSC’s 190-year-plus mixed team has collected second place after taking on Australia-wide competition at Surf Life Saving Australia’s Coolangatta Gold.

The race began hard and fast, and at the end of the first stage (10km surf ski) Peter Madden was coming fourth. 

Sue McCaughtrie  swam hard for 2km in the second leg, while Paul Davis picked up a couple of places in the 3km board paddle before Grant Carey finished strongly for the team in the 5.5km beach run.

‘All the team’s hard training has paid off in coming second in a field of Australia’s best Surf Life Savers,’ Brunswick SLSC Guy Knox said. 

The annual Coolangatta Gold included over 100 clubs and 500 competitors from around Australia.

Brunswick SLSC’s Phil Parker also had a good day after finishing in the top ten in his age category in his first appearance in the individual course.
