Congratulations to our A boat crew who won the open men’s final at the Freshwater Carnival! It was a very close race with all six crews crossing the line together. North Steyne, however, was just a whisker in front and placed 1st, with Newport coming in 2nd and Lorne in 3rd. It was a very exciting finish and the first win of the season. Members of the winning crew are Aaron Butterworth, Ed White, Michael Bernerius, Chris Reid and Col Stanford who expertly tamed the waves as sweep.
The Boaties will be running the Steyne Hotel’s meat raffle every Friday night during February to raise money to help with carnival entry fees and travel expenses. Along with all the regular carnivals, we hope to have a team, or 2, competing at Aussies in Perth. Come down to the Steyne and support their efforts!
Congrats once again – you did the Black & Gold proud!
