‘Healthy ri­valry’ on wa­ter

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By ES­THER LAUAKI

Ti­tahi Bay hosted the White­horse Car­ni­val, an in­vi­ta­tional competition for all surf clubs across the re­gion, on Sun­day.

The lo­cal leg was the fi­nal of three events to see which of the coun­try’s top surf life­savers would win the White­horse Tro­phy.

Or­gan­iser Brent Harvey said there were some young up-and-com­ing ath­letes among the teams in­clud­ing Tyler Maxwell from Lyall Bay, who won the Iron­man event, Danny McDow­ell from Ti­tahi Bay who placed sec­ond in the Iron­man, and Nikki Cox from Napier, who won the Iron­woman and women’s surf ski surf boat races.

Harvey said there was some stiff competition on the waves but it was all in good fun.

‘‘The whole day went re­ally well we had fan­tas­tic weather. Paekakariki looks pretty good to win but the re­sults are yet to be fi­nalised.

‘‘ There’s al­ways a healthy ri­valry be­tween Paekakariki and Lyall Bay.’’

The day’s events also in­cluded the boat­ing leg of the Cap­i­tal Coast Boat Cham­pi­onships. Ti­tahi Bay Surf Life­sav­ing Club’s se­nior crew took out the open men’s sec­tion, while its un­der-19s boys and open girls crews also won their sec­tions.
