Augusta Margaret River Times - - Front Page - Pete Ca­wood

The 2018 SunS­mart Health­ways Grace­town Grom­mets surf com­pe­ti­tion was held at the week­end in me­mory of the nine lives lost in the 1996 Grace­town cliff col­lapse.

The 22nd an­nual memo­rial event was a suc­cess and fea­tured groms from across the State com­pet­ing against each other and pay­ing their re­spects.

The event was held at Grace­town’s North Point on Sun­day and clean, build­ing swell pro­vided con­di­tions suitable for all age di­vi­sions. Zac Webb helped start the morn­ing with a wel­come to coun­try.

Peo­ple came from near and far to en­joy the day, and the help of the com­mu­nity and event spon­sors made the event a big suc­cess.
