Wavemasters Outrigger Canoe Club hosts 2019 OC1/V1/OC2 and OC6 State Titles

The Wavemasters Outrigger Canoe Club hosted a top-notch weekend of events at Koombana Bay late last month.

Paddlers from Wavemasters, Perth Outrigger Canoe Club, West Coast Outrigger Canoe Club, Mandurah Ocean Club, Hurricane Dragon Boat and Outrigger Canoe Club Inc., Geographe Outrigger Canoe Club, Fremantle Outrigger Canoe Club, and Rockingham Outrigger Canoe Club took part in the 2019 Qube Ports and Bulk Outrigger OC1/V1/OC2 State Titles on Saturday, April 27.

Teams then returned to the beach for the All Lift Lifting Services Outrigger OC6 State Titles on April 28.

The Men, Women, Junior and Masters' competitors enjoyed the mix of short course and long course races.

Following two action-packed days of paddling, Mandurah clinched the 2019 State Titles Champion Club trophy with 181 points - ahead of second-placed Wavemasters on 158.

Wavemasters edged out Mandurah to claim the 2018/19 Summer Series Champion Club trophy for the first time in 18 years.

"There was some good racing and we had good numbers," Wavemasters coach Wayne Hughes said. "We love getting all of the clubs to come and visit Bunbury."

Wavemasters formally acknowledged the four race sponsors - Qube Ports and Bulk, All Lift Lifting Services, Syncro Engineering, and McKitterick Chartered Accountants.
