National triumph for Noosa Masters swimmers

Noosa Masters swimmers celebrate with a ‘victory cake’ at the Noosa Aquatic Centre.

The waters at the Noosa Aquatic Centre run hot every Tuesday morning.

That’s when Noosa Masters swimmers strive for victory in the Vorgee Endurance 1000 national competition.

For the seventh year in a row, the Noosa club has won the coveted trophy, beating 142 other clubs in the year-long competition.

In 2019, Noosa’s 63 swimmers amassed 21,233 points – 4870 points clear of the runner-up and ahead of 142 other clubs.

The competition is a true test of ‘endurance’.

Swimmers are challenged to complete 62 timed swims, ranging from 400 metres up to 60 minutes in duration.

Remarkably, of the 59 swimmers nationwide who gained top points (1005), six were from Noosa. They were backed up by enthusiastic team mates, including the indomitable veteran Bob McCausland who placed first nationally in the 90-94 age group!

From the first day of 2020, Noosa swimmers have been busy piling up Endurance 1000 points, keen to make it eight-in-a-row in 2020. The superb Noosa Aquatic Centre provides the perfect venue for that quest.
