Lifesavers have field day at series

SURF LIFESAVING: Ryan Bennett (Elliott Heads) and Julie Davis (Moore Park) led the local charge in the second round of the Wide Bay Capricorn Branch Premiership Series at Agnes Water with six wins each.

Bennett, who is also the Surf Life Saving Queensland Surf Sports co-ordinator, claimed the open male beach flags and sprint, and surf, rescue tube, board and ironman races.

Davis claimed victories in the masters' female single ski and the 40-49 years female sprint, flags, surf race, rescue tube race and ironwoman.

Lynne Messer, of Moore Park, was just as dominant in the 50-plus years' female age division, winning the surf race, board, rescue tube, flags and sprint.

Davis' elder son Benjamin Davis matched the feat in the under-19 male age division by beating all comers in the flags, surf race, board, single ski and ironman.

On the beach, Bundaberg's Annelise Wesley took out the double-double in the U17 female events by winning the flags and sprints for the round, as well as the same events in the postponed races from round one that were also conducted on the day.

Elliott Heads' Daniel Crook almost performed a similar feat, but missed on winning only the U17 male flags in round two.

Three host club representatives were among the multiple winners - Angela Furneaux, who claimed the 30-39 years female flags, sprint, rescue tube and surf race, Tim Hein, who picked up the 30-39 years male surf and board races, and Stacey Renehan, who completed the open female beach double.

The Bundaberg club had two dual winners - Garry Ryan in the 30-39 years male flags and sprint, and Jeremy Rethamel, who powered to victory in the U17 male rescue tube and board race.

Heath Oldfield and Jack Lloyd had single wins for Agnes Water, while Davis' other son Matthew and Joanna Tolvanen were also among the victors for Moore Park, Joshua and Emma Finnis and Toby Sheppard had one win each for Bundaberg, with Elliott Heads' Dylan Vaughan also taking out one event.
