Weaver and Jones Top Qld Titles

The 2013 Queensland Titles were a huge success at Sandy Hook in Bundaberg. In a town that's been ravaged not once, but twice by horrible flooding in previous years, the support of the local media and towns folk, as well as the tireless efforts of the Sandy Hook Ski Club provided one of the smoothest and most successful qld titles in memory. With some amazing racing over the weekend, it was Mark Weaver, skiing behind NGR's Blazen, winning not only his age but also the coveted Wayne Mawer Men's Open cup and the unlimited race stamping his dominance on a stacked field of talent. Kylee Jones won Social womens and the Eloise Anderson Open Women's Cup to once again, making it four in row, assert her authority on skiing North of the border. SRQ would like to thank all competitors, volunteers and spectators for adding to the amazing spectacle that was out on the water. Full results will be available on in upcoming days.

Cranny goes 4 in a row at the Southern 80

Mark Cranny, Damien Matthews, Pete Proctor and Ziggy have smashed all comers at the 2013 Southern 80. Winning the Baker's Blitz in just outside The Syndicate's record time, the boys backed up on Sunday to finish within seconds of their own record again, with yet another 30 minute and 30.... time. That's three in a row less than 30.40!

Second place over the 80, and third in the Blitz went to 99 Psycho Clowns, with Dan MacMahon, Ian Baker, Mick Kelly and Wayne Mawer. Their third place in the blitz made more impressive by the fact they had to basically run it twice, after being red flagged at Meerool.

Third overall, only a second behind 99PC was the Merc Force team of Don Gulley, Grant Patterson, Kris Knights and Jake Tegart.

Gassa did a great job to take second in the Baker's Blitz on Saturday.

The race was marred by a few serious accidents, but it would appear that all involved are on the way to recover.

Baker's Blitz - 1st Hellrazor, 2nd Gassa, 3rd 99PC
Southern 80 - 1st Hellrazor, 2nd 99PC, 3rd Merc Force
