After postponing the Dampier dive comp twice due to hefty wind conditions the weather gods were finally in our favor! Third time was the charm & the day could not have been better.
We had a total of 8 teams (16 spearos) compete. This included 3 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:
