TACKING Point Surf Life Saving Club's Evie Hewens stood out as the best-performed athlete at the Mid North Coast Branch Championships on February 13 and 14.
Hewens took home gold medals in the under-12 surf race, board and ironperson before she backed up the next day with gold medals in the sprint and relay along with a silver medal in the beach flags.
Tacking Point surf club president Mick Lang said the championships were always a way to showcase a club's ability to run events.
"The forgotten people of the club are the ones who set up the courses, including the water and beach areas and man the barbecues throughout the day," he said.
"Members work hard behind the scenes to ensure all the officials were provided with food and water throughout both days.
"I know every club in our branch has them, but without these hard workers, the event would not be as successful as it was."
A new program for the event saw the water events for all age groups including open and masters' divisions were held on February 13 and all beach events were on February 14.
Competitors were greeted with rain and slight winds with the Tacking Point nippers facing challenging surf conditions especially in the under-9, 10 and 11 year age groups.
Many Tacking Point members won medals including the junior march past team who won a gold medal.
