The Emu Park contingent includes Clancy Auriac, Daniel Rye, Stephen Dendle, Jake Simpson, Casey Lee, Jenna Deane-Freeman, Kirsty Welsh, Lucy Blanchard and the club's boat crew.

They earned their squad call-ups after round one of the Wide Bay Capricorn Branch Premiership Series at Tannum Sands beach.

In the under-19 women's division Olde claimed the sprint and flags.

Yeppoon's Miranda Bell won her under-15 swims while Tessa Power could not be passed in the under-15 sprints.

Emu Park's Daniel Rye has continued his beach form winning the senior male beach flags while fellow club member Paul Urquhart won his masters 50 years and over male board race, ski, flags and beach sprint while John Auriac won his 4049 years masters male ski race.

The branch team, to contest the North Australian Championships in Mackay starting on November 25, will be finalised at Agnes Water on November 12.
