The team has returned from Nationals 2019. It was a great team effort by everyone but some notable performances were:

  • Zac Quickenden getting second in the Open Men’s Ski race. Steve Drabble was not far from the money either.

  • The senior boys getting third in the ski relay and second in the double ski.

  • Alex Hickman’s paddle to get second in the U16 men’s ski race. That wasn’t his best paddle either, his semi final paddle through the field after copping a couple off the beach was a sensational effort.

  • The Open Women’s arena. Storming it on the water and having a good time doing it.

  • The U16’s efforts in both the men’s and woman’s arenas.

  • Lara Marsh backing up Oceans by making all her finals in the U16 girls arena, and featuring in the 5th placed Open Women’s Taplin team with Danielle Curry and Ashley Archer.

  • Brad Wilsons sensational team BBQ on Friday night.

Next years Nationals is in Gisborne, start putting the pennies away now.
