Round 3 of 2009 Ocean Ski Series, from Bondi to Watsons Bay, was held on Saturday 24 October with over 200 paddlers taking part. Congratulations to Tim Jacobs, who once again proved very hard to beat claiming victory in the open mens division. Manly's Murray Stewart finished in second place with Jasper Mocke and Olympian Tony Schumacher rounding out the top four.
In the open womens division Queensland's Kirsty Holmes reaffirmed her dominance with a convincing victory over South Coast duo Elyse Yardley and Lauren Smith.
Well done to all those who braved the conditions and especially to the organisers on another very successful event. For full race results visit www.oceanseries.com.au and please enjoy our event photos below.
Racing Tip: In conditions like these, back your ability and have the confidence that you will do well. Don't let any negative talk creep in as it will defeat you. Stay positive and strong in the belief that you have done the work and have the ability.
