Phillip Island golf
THE ISURFWITH Victorian Tour returns to
beaches across the state in February, with Surf-
ing Victoria’s High Performance Coaching Direc-
tor Cahill Bell-Warren being joined by Victorian
Indigenous Surfing Champion Jordie Campbell
for a series of exciting water safety and coaching
sessions from Portland to Mallacoota.
With years of experience on the elite WQS tour
as a competitor and coach, Bell-Warren has ex-
tensive experience and knowledge on the pro-
cesses required to improve surfing performanc-
es and compete at all levels.
Bell-Warren is looking forward to being joined
by Jordie Campbell.
“Jordie is an integral part of Surfing Victoria’s
Performance Division and has a great passion
for delivering high performance coaching oppor-
tunities to Victoria’s regional areas.
“His experience across all levels of surfing,
from grass roots participation programs will be
a valuable addition to the ISURFWITH Victorian
The program arrives on Phillip Island on
March 3. On the previous day, March 2, it takes
in Wonthaggi Secondary College.
An exciting addition to this year’s program is
all participants go in the draw to win a brand
new surf board.
Thanks to Global Surf Industries, partici-
pants in the program will have the chance to
win a new 7S Double Down board just by being
part of the tour.
The program will also feature essential wa-
ter safety elements to improve the participants’
skills in ocean environments and provide all
with essential skills to help keep others safe in
Participants in last year’s program on Phil-
lip Island found themselves involved in a real
life rescue, when two people were swept out to
sea in a rip at Woolamai, just near where their
training session was being conducted.
Surfing Victoria CEO Adam Robertson is
pleased at the opportunity the program pres-
ents for young male surfers in Victoria.
“Surfers play an essential role in keeping
other surfers safe, as well as protecting and
educating the wider public at times where Surf
Lifesaving services may not be active on the
“Not only does the tour play a huge role in
our state-wide talent identification process, it is
a great opportunity for surfers from far reach-
ing regions to learn essential rescue and water
safety techniques which may help save others
in the future.”
A program designed to train young surfers to perform a water rescue is being run again on
Phillip Island this year. Last year, while the same program was in session at Cape Woolamai
Beach, two people were swept out to sea in a rip, and the training took on a whole new mean-
ing. Ken Rudan, a surfer already in the water, rushed to the aid of the distressed pair after
hearing screams for help, and was joined by the program participants who helped bring the
victims to safety. Local participants are pictured last year with local surfer Ken Rudan, who
rushed to the rescue, and program leader Tristan Forras. They are Noah Goldsbury, Chad
Garrett, Joe Van Dijk and Ravi Fostin. Photo: Cahill Bell-Warren, Surfing Victoria.

tion and Lyn Gay won the Ladies.
THE annual Victorian
were held over the Australia
Day Long Weekend at the Rex
Glover Regional Aquatics
Complex in Sale.
It is not often that the
championships are hosted
by a Gippsland-based club
so the South Gippsland
Bass Swimming Club made
the most of the local facility
and we had 37 swimmers
compete which is our largest
team to date.
The championships were
conducted over three days
with the heats swum in the
morning and the final and
relay events swum in the eve -

the swimming was fast but

We had 15 swimmers who
competed at their first long-
course country event. A
highlight of these new swim-
mers was Cooper Quaife who
qualified for his first final
and came eighth with a per-
We had some terrific re -
sults in the younger age
groups, especially in the re -
lay events with a number of
top 10 finishes.
The 12 year old boys free-
style relay team did very well
to finish with a bronze medal
and a fifth in the medley relay
event. Both Sophie McKenzie
and Riley Harris made finals
in their favourite events and
swam personal bests.
Again it was our senior

pool, and here are some of
their outstanding results:
Nathan Foote 16 yo 200m
Freestyle 2nd, Men’s 200m
Backstroke 2nd, 16 yo 100m
