ST Ives Biathlon – 2 July 2011

ST Ives Biathlon – 2 July 2011

For once it was sunny and warm for the annual St Ives Biathlon and our younger members did us proud. Liam Jolly won his age group, Vicky Burlingham was 2nd in hers and Amy Jolly was 3rd in her age group. Also taking part were Daire Peters, Bethany Prisk, Isla Symons and Finn Burford – very well done to them all. In the open race club member, Michael Grant, completed the run and swim in an amazing 36 mins & 29 sec finishing in 2nd place overall. Also taking part were Dan Latham & Phil Needham who were probably in the top 20 finishers but didn’t appear in the results despite the timing chips this year. Masters Dave Morgan and Carol Penberthy also completed the event. Mike Penberthy unfortunately couldn’t do the swim section as his zip broke in transition!... read more
Nippers From Hayle SLSC Excel Again at Oceanfest Event in Croyde

Nippers From Hayle SLSC Excel Again at Oceanfest Event in Croyde

A team of our Nippers attended the Oceanfest Event in Croyde at the weekend and did extremely well, please see below a report of the day written by our Nipper Officer, Traci Parker. “Once again this year, Hayle Surf Life Saving Club were invited to enter a team of nippers for the Oceanfest event, in Croyde, North Devon. This event involves eight invited clubs from across Devon and Cornwall to submit a team of 24 nippers – 12 girls and 12 boys. With each team submitting the same number of competitors, we all started on an even playing field. The events included swim and board races including relays in the sea, and beach flags, a sprint relay and 1km run on the beach. The conditions were extremely challenging again this year, with a strong wave that must have seemed so big to some of the younger competitors. All of the nippers put in excellent performances. Of special note, I would like to mention Ethan Treloar, Lewis King and Tanni Smitham who all competed in an older age group than they belong, in order to fill those age groups. Every one of the nippers gave their very best and I could single out every one of them for something they excelled at during the weekend, not least of all for their positive approach. A big thank you also goes out to all of the parents who came to support and especially those who turned up and immediately put on their wetsuits and jumped into the sea to help out with safety cover. The day ended on a very positive note,... read more

Hayle Surf Life Saving Club Annual Club Do

Hayle Surf Life Saving Club celebrated an extremely successful year at their Annual Club Do and Presentation evening at a new venue, The Old Shire Inn near Camborne. Their excellent guest speaker was Guy Botterill, a Sports Development Officer for Cornwall Council. He praised the Club for their achievements throughout the year, their professionalism and their help with Council run events through the year. He then read out a letter from the Town Clerk of Hayle Town Council appreciating the Clubs representation of the Town name at the recent Surf Life Saving World Champs in Egypt and their success with 24 medals and 4 World Champions. Nipper, Junior and Senior members were then presented with their certificates for the various qualifications they have obtained during the year ranging from the Nipper National Surf Safety Awards to the Beach Lifeguard Award.
