Meet the Women’s Crew

Let us introduce you to the Maroochydore Forcettes Women’s Crew who are representing Staminade Quenchers in Round 2 of the Ocean Thunder Surf Boat Series at Dee Why in Sydney. The crew made the cut at the qualifiers in Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast. Here’s a bit more about them all.

1: Elise Buchanan – 3rd season rowing surfboats. The cafe connoisseur of the group. Never one to shy away from some healthy competition and always ready with a witty remark to keep us on our toes. Also somehow manages to nap sitting bolt upright.

2: Morgana Jones – 2nd season of surfboats. The mum of the crew, makes sure we are all well organised for training and travelling. Can put away a decent amount of food but is the most aggressive and dedicated person in the gym. Also makes a mean tiramisu.

3: Ginny Burke/Emma Lane – Ginny: soon to be leaving us for a job in the Whitsundays, Ginny will be sorely missed by everyone. Ginny is the class clown of the crew but couldn’t come across a better friend to all of us. An integral part of our success last season, doesn’t mind the occasional wild raspberry or guava cruiser. Emma: the newbie of the crew, Emma has slotted in nicely – returning to the fold after a season at Southport. A legitimate cowgirl, Emma isn’t shy of getting in amongst it and can’t wait to see what she brings to the boat.

4: Catherine Ulrich – 3rd season rowing surfboats. An impressive first aid competitor prior to making the switch to surfboats. The baby of the crew but also the more sensible one of the bunch, loves a good glass of red.

Sweep: Meggsy – “The Midget” a talented sweep, that makes good decisions. Bob is sometimes impressed with him.

Ocean Thunder Surfboat Series Round 2 will be held Saturday 10th December 2016 at Dee Why beach, Sydney. To find out more go to Ocean Thunder Surfboat Series website.
