Outriggers win again in series round
THERE was plenty of champagne being popped at Yeppoon last weekend after the Canoe Point Outriggers' sensational round two form in the AOCRA Northern Zone Grand Prix Series.
It was a fantastic performance from the members who travelled to the Capricorn Coast for round two after taking out the first round of the series.
The experienced OC6 crew of Darren Humberstone, Bill Jarvis, Derek Smith, Adam Stafford, Grant Olds and John Barden tore up the water over the two days of competition.
They finished the 4km Masters sprint in first spot and backed that form up with second in the Men's Open sprint and third in the Masters Men's marathon.
Success also followed for the A Team women's crew of Karen Straatmans, Wendy Marks, Carol Morris, Carrie De Britts, Debbie Bennetts and Rachael Nicholson.
The crew produced a fine effort to finish second in the tough 14km Master Women's marathon and third in the 4km sprint event.
