Last weekend I took a team of six beach athletes from the FNC Branches, the only NSW athletes, to the third and final round of The Fastest Man on Sand series at Mooloolaba. Three of the athletes were our own and they all did brilliantly considering the competition was dominated by athletes from Kurrawa and Alex Headland. It was a fantastic experience for them all running on Sunshine Coast sand in preparation for AUSSIES in a couple of weeks. Lachlan Watt (U15) who was competing at his first FMOS placed 2nd in flags and 5th in sprints, Cahrizma McDonald Cass placed 9th in flags and 2nd in sprints and Claudia Crawford placed 8th in flags and 3rd in sprints. A fantastic effort from all and a big thank you to Glynis Watt for her support on the day.

  Another congratulations and thank you  goes out to our patrols from last weekend. A bunch of great young patrolling members conducted rescues of swimmers on both days. The young people in our club are a credit to their generation and are wonderful leaders.  As a community we should be very proud that we have a group of volunteers that are dedicated to keeping our beach a safe environment. Support them by always swimming between the flags.
