Formidable Woopi makes waves in North Coast Boat Series

THE undefeated Woolgoolga master's women claimed yet another win at the North Coast Boat Series.

The women's masters were one of three Woolgoolga crews to scalp a win in the sixth round of the series at Old Bar at the weekend.

Woolgoolga's open men and women's crews both took out the maximum points in their categories.

Woolgoolga boat captain Trevor Clark said his crews had a great start to the New Year, sitting second on the overall leader board behind Kempsey - Crescent Head.

Clark said Woolgoolga wouldn't likely catch up with the leaders as it boasted four more crews.

"We've got five crews and they've got nine,” Clark said.

Nevertheless, he said his crews' performance was a testament to the hard work they put in over the Christmas and New Year's break, training relentlessly over the three week period.

On top of the three wins in round six, Woolgoolga finished second in the masters 160s and mixed Whale Cup, and fifth in the reserve grade.

Clark said Woolgoolga aimed to finish the North Coast Boat Series strongly before it set its sights on the Country and NSW Titles which will be held in February and March.

"That's what our heavy training is aimed at,” he said.

Later in the year, Clark said Woolgoolga stood a chance of putting the Coffs Coast's Northern Beaches on the world map when the Lifesaving World Championships dock in Adelaide in November.

Before then Clark said Woolgoolga will put its best foot forward in the final three rounds of the North Coast Boat Series to be held at Bonny Hill, Port Macquarie and Woolgoolga.
