Sam Bells are setting Cap Coast surf pace
IT WAS a winning day for anyone called Sam Bell at the Emu Park Surf Life Saving Club's three-point nipper carnival yesterday.
Emu Park's Sam Bell set the pace in the under-12 boys division winning his ironman, board and surf race.
The Emu Park Sam Bell also tasted victory with Luke Guinane in the board rescue.
Yeppoon's Sam Bell was another champion in yesterday's competition, this time in the under-14 boys age division.
In a carbon-copy performance, the Yeppoon Sam Bell also won his ironman, board and surf race events.
And, not to be outdone, Yeppoon's Sam Bell also combined with Aaron Lacey to win their under-14 board rescue.
Miranda Bell, a Queensland surf lifesaving representative and twin of Yeppoon's Sam Bell, also dominated her age division winning the under-14 ironmaiden, board and surf events.
Yeppoon's Todd Russell also excelled winning the ironman, board and surf race events in his under-13 boys division.
Competitors from Emu Park, Yeppoon and Tannum Sands hit the water and beach yesterday.
High tides almost cancelled some board events earlier in the day, but many competitors still relished the surf conditions with many catching waves on the return to shore to fly through the field.
The surf lifesaving action continues on the Capricorn Coast this weekend when Yeppoon hosts the Wide Bay Capricorn Senior Branch Championships on Saturday and Sunday.
