Cairns wins 9th straight title at North Aussies

Cairns has extended its remarkable winning streak at the 2018 North Australian Championships, comfortably taking the overall honours for a 9th consecutive year.

The club finished on 1,238.5 points to finish ahead of Tannum Sands (847 points) and Port Douglas (465 points).

The Championships saw almost 400 competitors aged from under-11 through opens flock to Mackay for the annual event.

Traditionally reserved for clubs between Port Douglas and Hervey Bay, this year’s event was opened up to athletes from all corners of the state for the first time.

The three-day carnival saw lifesavers put their skills to the test across a range of disciplines including beach sprints, iron events, surf boats, and pool rescue.

Following the conclusion of the carnival, the 2018 Queensland Country Team was selected to contest the upcoming Interbranch Championships. To view the team, please click here.
