And to top off the weekend, we dropped a fresh bunch of young U19 girls from our Competition Squad in the boat to give it a jam. They all returned to the beach with smiles from ear to ear. Thanks to Tom Jacka for getting them out there and doing the intro to the world we live in. I know they’ll be back, hello new generation of boaties!
Unfortunately, as of 5.30pm Monday night, it was announced that our Piha Black Pearls missed out on the NZ crew selection, by one place. This has just stoked the fire to train harder, faster, stronger for the season to come and show the rest of the field who we are.
Our next carnival will be at Oakura Beach, New Plymouth on the 12th of January, for Round Two of the Surf Boat Series. A wee break for Christmas & New Years, and straight back into it.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year from the Piha Boaties!
