Far North Coast clubs led the charge in the overall pointscore with three in the top four after Day Two of the 2010 Stramit NSW Country Surf Life Saving Championships at South West Rocks on Saturday.
With Open and Masters events contested, Byron Bay finished up on top, while strong performances by Cudgen Headland competitors snared second place. Shellharbour took third spot and Lennox Head-Alstonville was in fourth position.
Leading the charge for Cudgen were some powerful performers in the water including Scott McCartney, Jarrad Cain, Rohan Small, Ben James, Bill Hamilton and Dylan Klein, who took out the first three places in the Open Board Rescue.
A very happy Jarrad Cain won the Open Ironman event.
For Lennox Head, Nathan Gray won U19 Ironman and Hayden Thomas won the U17 Ironman.
Byron Bay won the U17 Male Ski Relay and the Open Women’s Board Rescue events.
South Coast’s Jordan White (Warilla-Barrack Point) took out the Open Ironwoman, one of the carnival’s premier events.
Warilla-Barrack Point was too strong in the Open Men’s Surfboats and Kiama came out on top in the Reserve grade Surfboats.
Shellharbour favourite Zoe Elkerton took first place in the U17 Female Swim and the club clean-sweeped the top three spots in the 2-Person R&R events.
The competition wraps up on Sunday, with the remainder of the teams events to be contested.
