Brunswick Heads surf lifesaver Paul ‘Punchy’ Davis won gold in the 600m paddle board race, from a group of 18 finalists, at the Queensland Masters Titles recently held in Tugun. Paul also won bronze in the iron man.
Other strong performances in the water, from Brunswick, were from Kiri Olsen who won silver in the iron woman event, and bronze in the single ski event.
Margo Madden won silver in the beach sprint and beach flags events. Dave Quemard won silver in the one kilometre beach run.
The Queensland Titles are a prelude to the Australian Titles to be held in Maroochydore later in April.
Brunswick SLSC is expecting another strong performance from members.
Paul and others attributed their performance to new Force Field Boards made and shaped by Crabbes Creek legend craftsman ‘Ra’.
