Coalcliff SLSC Black Ironperson 2016-2017 - wrapup

Each season Coalcliff SLSC holds four events which go into making up the Coalcliff SLSC “Triple Crown”. It is called the Triple Crown because to be eligible for a place on the leaderboard entrants need to compete in and complete at least three of these four events:

·         Coalcliff SLSC Bridge to Boatshed Run

·         Coalcliff SLSC Beach to Bombi Swim

·         Coalcliff SLSC Rod Stevens Memorial Board Paddle

·         Coalcliff SLSC Black Ironperson

The final event of the competition, the Coalcliff SLSC Black Ironperson was held on Sunday March the 26th. A decent swell, the ever present Coalcliff Beach shore dump, off-shore winds and unforgiving currents made for very trying conditions.

Once again Matthew Logan was the one to beat and once again… no one did. Absolutely enormous effort by Matthew. New SRC recruit Tianna Massey proved why she has been one the clubs highest nippers point scorers, coming in second. Well done Tianna.

Nathan Bourne came in a very respectable third followed by Dean Hall, Andrew Massey, Craig Hall, Aidan Frederiksen and club favourite Nicole Hall (aka True Grit!)… Amazing effort Nicole, and not a single wardrobe malfunction!

The Coalcliff SLSC Triple Crown Leaderboard is under wraps until our awards presentation night but a massive congratulations to everyone who took the challenge and very special thanks to all the helpers including water safety, IRB and JetSki operators, coordinators, family and friends (cheering squad) and let’s not forget the photographers, both in and out of the water. If it’s not on Facebook it didn’t really happen!
