RPS The Last Stand RESULTS

Well, after many RPS events where we all slogged it out in tough conditions, Mother Nature was kind to us today with a magnificent day on the bay.  In still flat conditions, the final leg of the 2013 SUP VIC / Surfing Victoria Flat Water SUP Championship season was run and won at Green Point, Brighton. Chris Clarke once again showed he is a force to be reckoned with in his debut season, winning the Men’s Open, and Leon Blachos shook off the competition to win the Men’s Masters.  Bobby Furby won the Men’s 12’6″ and Robert Burns won the Senior Men’s divisions, with Craig Spottiswood taking out the non-raceboard category.  Jean Ringrose made it a clean sweep in the Women’s Open, winning every race she has entered this season.  Awesome effort.  Kathy Naoumidis won the Women’s Masters once again, showing nothing is going to hold her back!  Kristi and Jono took out junior girls and boys, respectively, ending off top seasons for both of them. Another fantastic day on the water, and a great finish to the series.  All eyes all now look to the Surfing Victoria State Titles next weekend… – Tim Patterson, SUP VIC
