FOUR Portsea Surf Life Saving Club members have been selected in the Victorian inflatable rescue boat (IRB) racing teams competing at the national championships in Mollymook, New South Wales 21-24 July.
Sophie Courtney, Andrew May and Finn Nicholas have qualified for the state team while Sas Macnamara has been selected as team reserve.
The four are part of a 36-strong squad selected by Life Saving Victoria’s aquatic sports council, based on results at the recent TRE Motorsport 2022 Victorian IRB championships.
“Being selected to represent your state is one of the highest honours for our athletes, team managers, coaches and coordinators,” LSV board director aquatic sport Aaron Green said.
“Victoria has a long history of success at the national level in IRB racing and I am confident the team selected will continue this tradition at the 2022 Australian IRB Championships in Mollymook.
As well as state and development teams from each state, individual clubs will also send teams to compete at the championships.
