Masters of the surfboats

BUNDABERG Masters side took out all the competition at Neilson Park Beach to dominate the second round of the aussieBum Queensland Cup on the weekend.

The team, which consisted of John McGregor , Peter Dahl, Col Reed and Kerry Short, defeated teams from Mooloolaba, Alexander Headlands and Coolum to take out the event.

“It was a pretty good win for the boys, there was a lot of competition there,” Bundaberg Surf Lifesaving Club president Paul Wessel said.

Team from across the State were competing at Bargara on the weekend for the annual event.

The races were part of the aussieBum short-course skins series, which takes place at beaches across Queensland.

A Bundaberg team came second in the reserves event, finishing behind the Mooloolaba Makos.

In the opens event, it was Caloundra that dominated.

The Metropolitan Caloundra men and women won their divisions in the open event.

Sweep Mick Bacon said the calm conditions at Bargara helped his crews secure victory.

“We enjoy these slightly shorter races and were looking for consistency and today we were able to find it,” he said.

“As we are Brisbane-based crews we found the flat conditions helpful.”

The veteran sweep paid tribute to the Kurrawa crew, which finished behind Caloundra in both senior races.

“Kurrawa boaties are still the benchmark,” Bacon said.
