After all the Covid restrictions were finally lifted the Dampier dive comp went off without a hitch! The viz wasn’t too great but the conditions for the day were favorable.
We had a total of 8 teams (16 spearos) compete. This included 2 junior spearos who absolutely killed it on the day! Our spearos had a start time of 5am from the Dampier boat ramp & weigh in started at 4.30pm. There were some huge fish shot on the day and one team got the best mixed bag which helped them take out the championship for the day.
The winners were as follows:
Runner up Junior: Wiremu who weighed in a nice trout Champ Junior: Thomas Poole
Third spearo: Max Rossi Runner up Spearo: Blake Caddy Champion Spearo: Elias Dungey
Our new club records from the day went to the following: SENIOR CLUB RECORDS: Coral Trout - 5.95kgs – Blake Caddy
