St Kilda win 2018 BP South Island IRB Championship title

St Kilda win 2018 BP South Island IRB Championship title


A solid performance from St Kilda saw the Dunedin club retain their BP South Island Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) Championship title over the weekend.

The annual event, held at Warrington Beach, was attended by close to 40 crews from 10 Surf Life Saving Clubs, predominately from the South Island.

In similar fashion to last year, the event was dominated by neighbouring clubs St Kilda and St Clair but ultimately saw the reigning champs take the win with a total of 120 points, just four points ahead of St Clair on 116.

Sumner Surf Life Saving Club from Christchurch took the third podium spot with 95 points followed by fellow Cantabrians North Beach (87) and hosts Warrington in fifth (34).

Surf Life Saving New Zealand Sport Manager Mike Lord says the 0.5m wave and light winds made for some close and exciting racing from all of the crews.

This year saw an increase in the number of event entries and Mr Lord says it was great to see the change in age groups with good numbers across most divisions creating some tight racing.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better day on the beach, with awesome weather, surf, sun and great racing. A massive thanks to the officials, water crews and volunteers who made the day a real success.”

The BP South Island IRB Championships followed the BP North Island IRB Championships, held in Taranaki last month, which was won by Port Waikato’s Sunset Beach Surf Life Saving Club.

The crews now have just under a month to prepare for the finale of the 2018 BP New Zealand IRB Championships which is set to take place at Waihi Beach from April 7 and 8 as they all battle it out for the honour

of top IRB racers in the country.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>
