2016-03-16 06:00

FOR the second year in a row Port Elizabeth’s Bruce Campbell won the popular City Lodge Hotels Group 3 Beaches Challenge which took place last Sunday morning along the Port Elizabeth Beachfront.

A unique event which sees participants racing between and coming to shore on the city beaches before completing a 5km run back to the start saw over 170 entries this year.

In the individual Men’s category Campbell was followed closely by Bradley Reen and Jack de Kort whilst in the Ladies’ category it was Antonella Saporta who took the win from Lauren Munton and Liza Kingston.

Then in the duo-team category the pairing of Kevin Richards and Billy Browne proved too strong as they beat Nick Mowbray and Mark Groch with father and son pairing PJ and Cameron Duffy in third place.

In the quad-team category it was Ken Craig and his two sons, Connor and Craig, that teamed up with Graham Young to win the race ahead of team T4 and the team ‘Three Kings and a Queen’.

In the lifesaving Ironman Category it was 21-year-old Wayne Jones who led from the start to beat his younger brother Daniel with Bryce Lloyd in third place. All winners won themselves meal vouchers from one of the City Lodge Hotel Group establishments in Port Elizabeth whilst lucky draw prizes from hydration sponsor BOS Sports, News Cafe, Bargain Buys and Caltex Eastern Cape up for grabs on the morning.

Penultimate aQuellé ocean racing series this Sunday

It’s Round 9 for the aQuellé Ocean Racing Series this Sunday morning on Hobie Beach with all the action getting underway from 9am. With just two race days remaining for Season XI, it’s getting tight for those in contention for overall Series honours.

With 5 of the possible 9 race days (round 2 was cancelled) counting for overall points, it’s over the next two race days that the Series is won or lost.

For some who have performed well all season, the overall title is already assured and this is true for two of our top swimmers. Ian Venter (1km) and Daniel Jones (2km) have each won 5 races already in the Series to secure themselves maximum points and the respective overall title.

The Series prize giving function for Season XI will be held at News Café on Sunday, April 3, immediately after the last race day. Prize giving will be from 11am to 1pm with trophies and medals for the overall Series champions and the various age group winners.

See for further information and head down to Hobie Beach this Sunday for great family fun.
