Our Head of Surf Sports David Finnimore is looking to raise some serious money to allow Bronte SLSC to upgrade a large number of old Rescue Boards, Race boards and ski's so our increasing number of members keen on improving their ocean skills have the right equipment to progress.
Together with Club Captain James McLennan and our fearless Nipper Coach Jason Gavin, David will be teaming up to represent Bronte SLSC in one of the worlds premier ocean races, the 53 kilometre Molokai to Oahu race in Hawaii on 27 May. Crossing this wild bit of ocean referred to as the Channel of Bones is not for the faint of heart, but the guys have been training 3-4 sessions a week for the past year to get race ready.
David and Jason have combined lost an amzing 28 kilo's pre-race, and no doubt a few more post race. On top of their own training, they both spend many hours teaching our Nippers through to our Masters a few days a week, and James puts in huge hours as Club Captain.
Please dig deep and support this great cause, all money raised will go directly to new boards and ski's for Club Members of all ages.
We wish our 3 guys the best of Aloha as they face this incredible challenge and look forward to tracking them as they make their crossing on Sunday 27 May
Go Bronte !!
