4 Feb 2018 Posted by

Gisborne Junior Champs 2018 held at Midway Beach on February 4 2018 on a stunning summers day. Organisers had to postpone the event that was scheduled to take place on the Saturday but due to bad weather forecasted decided to play it safe and hold off till the Sunday, great decision!

The Gizzy Juniors is about all the clubs coming together to crown our local junior champions. In a fun but competitive environment it's about team work, camaraderie and some fantastic racing in the lead in to Regionals and then the pinnacle for the 11-14 year olds who go to Oceans.
