On Day Two of the 2018 NSW Surf Life Saving Championships, Elouera SLSC continued its winning streak to retain the top place on the pointscore at Swansea Belmont SLSC.

Cronulla, Cooks Hill and Wanda finished the day just points apart and with three Bate Bay clubs in the top four, the final day of the Championships, proudly supported by Your local club, looks to be a nail biter.

With teams events the order the day, club camaraderie was running high as relays on the beach track and in the water areas drew big crowds of enthusiastic spectators and anxious team managers, coaches and parents.

Newport SLSC began to make its presence felt with their dominant water competitors able to hit their stride. Mitchell and Jake Morris pipped the Avoca duo to win the U13 Board Rescue and was part of the winning Board Relay team, the U14s also claimed gold in their Board Rescue, Board Relay and the Surf Teams event and the aptly-titled Fab 4 team won the U13 Surf Teams. Manly was able to claw its way up the ladder to finish in fifth spot with wins in the U12 Male Board Relay team and the U11 Female Beach Relay.

But it was the sheer weight of teams and competitors from Elouera across a range of events that kept the points coming in, with the girls getting gold in the U9 and U10 Surf Teams, U9 Board Relay and U13 Surf Teams. The U14 Male Beach Relay team also won their event.

Local Hunter club Cooks Hill performed confidently against the large Sydney clubs to end in third spot with a host of great results including the U12 Female Surf Teams, the U12 Female Board Rescue and Board Relay, the U10 Female Board Relay and Daisy Breasley backed up her win in the U10 swim yesterday with a gold in the Board Race.

The U11 boys teams from Swansea Belmont were ecstatic with getting first and third in the Board Relay and first in the U11 Board Rescue and U9 Board Relay.

Lifesavers also showed their skills in the traditional Rescue and Resuscitation events, with wins in the 2 and 5 person events by Collaroy, Coogee and Wanda.

The final day of competition at the NSW Surf Life Saving Championships begins with the ceremonial March Past event, leading into a swag of finals across all areas which will decide who will take home the trophy for 2018.
