Peregian Beach nippers in action last weekend.

Peregian Beach Nippers travelled to Noosa Heads last week to prepare for the first of the Club Championships to be held for the season.

Noosa did not disappoint, and provided sensational conditions, with the ocean offering a perfect playground for all to enjoy.

The ocean was like a mill pond, allowing the nippers to take advantage of the perfect conditions.

Rarely, at Peregian, do we experience such calmness of the ocean.

The club championships are about giving every child the opportunity of participating in a range of events from a board race, swim, sprints, flags, wades and the ultimate events for the senior nippers, the ironman and ironwoman.

The swim was going to need a super human effort as the buoys were placed a bit further out to see the breathtaking talents of these fantastic athletes attack the swim with commitment and determination.

Many new parents to the club had the opportunity to watch their children participate in their first carnival and most were amazed at the athletic aptitude and sheer determination of all the nippers.

Special thanks to everyone who helped with transporting equipment to Noosa Heads, the officials and water safety officers for their continued support, and Anne Williams for some fantastic photos!

Good luck to our committed champions who are competing next weekend at the Met Caloundra Teams Carnival.
