KNYSNA SPORT NEWS - The team of five locals who took part in the Interprovincial Surfboat Championships in Durban on Saturday and Sunday, 1 and 2 May, ensured they flew the flag of the Knysna Surf Lifesaving Club high amid stiff competition.
The only team from Western Cape, Cameron Ward-Able (46), Jeffrey Willcocks (53), Ivan van Lier (54), Martin Els (39) and Steven van Lier (50) finished fourth out of six teams during the competition.
On Day 1 they battled with poor start positions and a boat filled with water.
They managed two 4th positions and one 5th. On Day 2 they had better luck and some good exits through the shore break. They earned one 2nd, one 3rd and one 6th place.
The crew are immensely thankful to their sponsors who made their trip possible, namely: Forty Degrees, MC&R Construction, Woodmillers, Cape Island Construction, VSM Joinery, Island Pools and Green Space.
