National Surf Lifesaving Competition 2018
On the 25th of August competitors from all over the country gathered in Kilkee, Co. Clare for the National Surf Lifesaving Championships.
My main event is the Rescue board race. There were 18 competitors in the race and they had qualified from their Regional competition held in each province.
You start by sprinting into the water carrying your board and then you start to paddle as soon as you can. We have to race around 3 buoys in the water. The race is about 400 metres long.
I got caught in the pack at the start and had to paddle hard to get back to the front. It was a very tight race right to the finish but I managed to keep going and came first in the end.
I am now the 12 year old National Champion.
