   Last Sunday we had 5 wonderful Under 14 Nippers  sit for interviews for Junior Lifesaver of the Year. Bree-Anne Wihlborg, Cahrizma McDonald Cass, Shakyra Gillard, Finn Whitney and Zane Patience where all outstanding nominees and should all be very proud of themselves.  JAC, Heath Davies announce that afternoon that our representatives for JLOTY this season are Zane Patience and Shakyra Gillard.  Well Done. We would also like to thank Alyssia and Sam Wood, our major sponsors from the Beach Hotel for their generosity and continual support of our young athletes and for making the interview experience such a positive one. Alyssia, Sam and President Pat have all commented on how well they all interviewed. We should be very proud of them all.

The club would also like to congratulate our 3 beachies Jemima Hynes (U13), Cahrizma McDonald Cass (U14) and Claudia Crawford  (U15) for their selection on the FNC Interbranch Team. The girls will go on to compete at the Interbranch Titles at Cape Hawke in December and we will all be cheering them on.

  The enthusiasm of the Under 14s is making our  ‘Take 3 ‘ for the Sea message of everyday, everywhere - pick up 3 pieces of rubbish to look after our marine environment quickly infiltrating not only our club but the local community. Sydney based Project Manager, Sarah Beard  is most impressed  with how quickly that Caba Crew has embraced such an important environmental project. New Junior Ambassador, Shakyra Gillard is supported by a very eager group of like minded Under 14s. They are  excited about organising the “Team Up To Clean Up” day and as Senior Ambassador for ‘Take 3’ I am looking forward  to working alongside such a wonderful bunch of young leaders.
