BRD Outrigger Canoe Club had 11 crews competing in the Outrigger Marathon Nationals held at Mooloolaba over the 2 days.

Day 1 started with perfect weather for racing and the calm conditions on the water.  First up was the Short Course Races (10klm) with BRD placing in 2 out of 3 Divisions:

Senior Master Women - Silver Medal 10klm Time: 1.00.14
Congratulations to Carol, Kym, Angie, Tracy E, Lyndal and Janine. Fantastic result  for their first year together as a crew.

Open Women - Gold Medal 10klm Time: 52.46
Well done to Tracey H, Erica, Rowie, Maddie, Cindy and Shazz - great work. First in division and first Womens Crew to cross the line...........

Open Men/Mixed 10klm Time: 53.42
Good job Tony, Gerri, Helo, Ian, Bryon and Jeff.  This crew had some last minute changes but still managed to put in great time.

Next it was time for the longer races for Womens and Mens Crews where BRD had 4 crews competing

Master Women Team A - Bronze Medal 18klm Time: 1.38.48
Well done to Sandy, Kim, Brenda, Carrie, Tracy and Vee. Tough division and a great result.

Master Women Team B 18klm Time: 1.51.47
Big effort from Michelle, Cath, Nicole, Renee, Deb and Jay.

Open Men 22klm Time: 1.48.58
Awesome effort from the boys (Adam, Keith, Steve, Mithra, Rod and Greg).  Without doubt this is a tough, competitive division and to finish in the top 10 is a huge achievement.

Master Men - Silver Medal 22klm Time: 1.44.18
Another great result for our mens crew of Tony, John, Ben, Jason, Bryon and Mick. Must have been those new white race shirts.  Congrats guys!

Day 2 it was all about the Mixed Crews and again BRD was well represented with 4 crews competing.

Master Mixed 16klm
While our crews finished just outside of the medals they made each other and the top 3 crews work hard.  Times for our crews:
Team A 1.10.06 and
Team B 1.10.15, couldn't get much closer.

Well done to Brenda, Carrie, John, Bryon, Tracy, Tony and Sandy, Kim, Jason, Ben, Mick, Michelle - no doubt there was a lot of discussion about this one!
Open Mixed 16klm

Our 2 crews in this division didn't place again they made the top crews work hard for their medals.  Couple of last minute changes to these 2 crews also but did themselves proud.

Congratulations to Ian, Deb, Rod, Keith, Monique, Jay, Maddie, Cath, Steve, Warren, Helo and Mithra.  It's hard work backing up on the 2nd day.
