Mojo will help crews
RAINBOW Bay Mojo’s sweep Marty Fletcher said the club had a good chance of taking the aussieBum Queensland Cup if the surfboat crews perform well at Tugun this morning.
The Rainbow Bay club is leading on points after round two of the competition, despite placing second in the men’s and women’s divisions on the Sunshine Coast last weekend.
Fletcher said the team’s training this week had been good preparation for the predicted one-metre swell at Tugun.
“We’ve had some good training sessions this week in some decent surf, so it’s good preparation for what we expect at Tugun this weekend,” he said.
“If both our men’s and women’s teams can remain consistent, we stand a good chance of taking out the series.”
BMD Northcliffe took first place last week but Fletcher said his club faced threats from other clubs too.
“Our biggest competition for the women will come from Mooloolaba, but it’s wide open for the men. Right now Northcliffe, Southport and Currumbin are our biggest threats,” he said.
Fletcher trained the crews at Kurrawa for a couple of years but said it was nice to be back at his original club at Rainbow Bay.
“It’s a nice little club at Rainbow and so far we’re doing pretty well,” he said.
Round three of the aussieBum Queensland Cup starts at Tugun today at 8am.
