2013 Lion Island Challenge

Lion Island 5

Last weekend, the The Lion Island Challenge was held once again up at Palm Beach and what an awesome event it was!

220 competitors, awesome conditions, fantastic hospitality from the Avalon Beach SLSC and sensational race organisation-

What more could you want!..oh yeah, awesome prizes too....


Vaikobi's Tim Jacobs dominated again for like the 5th year in a row or something, with Jeremy Cotter 2nd and Nathan Baggaley 3rd.

Luke Gosling and his Italian twin brother Alessandro Aldonecci cleaned up in the doubles whilst Hannah Minogue took out the Womens.

The OC's set a cracking pace with Graham Groeneveld continuing his strong season with a tight win over Paul Watkins.

It was awesome to have a strong SUP contingent racing with Sam Parker taking out the 8km SUP's Mens and Terrene Black the SUP Womens. Good times indeed.
