An impressive 25 swimmers made up the Bay of Islands team at the Northland Age Group Swimming Champion- ships held on January 21-23. This is Northland’s premier swim meet and was held for the first time at the new 50 metre pool in Dargaville. Records started to fall from the first race and by the end of the weekend seven Bay swimmers had between them broken previous Northland records 31 times. The total medal count was 33 gold, 22 silver, 21 bronze and a number of personal best times were swum. Bay of Islands Swimming Club fulltime head coach John Clarke was full of praise. ‘‘There is not much more I could have asked of these guys. The effort they put into their training is clear to see. ‘‘In a few weeks time, a number of these swimmers will be competing against the best swimmers in New Zea- land at various National meets – I can’t wait.’’ Lovely night, a nice breeze and slight seas The aftermath of the Bay Of Islands Regatta continued as a small fleet turned out for the Trixie Newton Travel Wednesday race 8 start. Those who did venture out were rewarded with a stun- ning evening, a steady breeze and slight seas. B division got away to a kite start out to the Brothers, led by Paperchase and BeepBeep. Course 15 went through Kent Passage and proceeded to circumnavigate the Black Rocks, where the wind changed direction and freshened to 15 knots. Sud- denly the fleet was hard on the wind, and while Paper- chase continued to lead, Wavelength was eating into her advantage, chased hard by Bedouin and Golden Delicious. Around Motuterakihi Island, the fleet had closed up and the race was on. By the time they reached the Brothers, Wavelength and Golden Delicious were neck and neck followed by Bedouin. They matched tacks up to the line when one sec- ond separated Golden Delicious and Wavelength. The handicap was won by Golden Delicious from Wave- length and Bedouin. A division did the same course and, as expected, Physical Favours pulled away to finish 12 minutes ahead of Vim with Sunday Sun another three minutes back. With only four boats in the A division, they were able to sail their own race without the cut and thrust of the B division. Physical Favours won the handicap prize and the double from Sunday Sun.
