Austi Blue crew too good


Austinmer Blue crews dominated the Saturday's second round of the Warilla Bowls Surf Boat Series at Warilla beach.

The Austi Blue open women's crew left rivals in their wake in the preliminary rounds before capping a perfect day with a runaway victory in the final.

Batemans Bay were next across the line, followed by Austinmer White.

A similar scenario took place in the open men's division, as Austinmer Blue took out the final after cruising through the early rounds.

The rapidly improving Corrimal crew claimed second spot, while Austi White had to settle for third.

"We had 50 crews competing in ideal 1.5 to two-metre surf conditions, and it certainly tested everybody out," series co-ordinator John Masters said.

Broulee prevailed in the under-19 men's event by a big margin from Helensburgh-Stanwell Park and Batemans Bay, while Corrimal 2 Sweeps secured line honours in the reserve division ahead of clubmates Corrimal Pistons and North Wollongong.

Wollongong City were too strong in the under-23 men and Austinmer Blue took out the under-23 women's final.

The third round of the annual series is at Shellharbour Beach on January 4.
