West Kirby Warriors

The West Zones’ West Kirby Warriors are the new champions of the Team 15 Champions Cup trophy!!!!!

The past weekend, the event took place with very rough and difficult condition, but all the participants fought hard to make their best.

Having beaten 2007 champions Team Astbury to claim their place at the final the Warriors were confident they could do well. Team Coach Simon Moore said; “We have worked really hard all year for this battling with Team Astbury the whole way through the regional heats just to get here. It feels amazing to hold the cup, it’s been a real team effort and it definitely paid off.” Team member 12 year old Oli Bradley Baker echoed Simon’s thoughts saying; “It’s the first time we’ve made the final and to win is really exciting however, we did come to win.”

There were over 100 competitors. Racing was split between 5 classes, 3.5m, 4.5m, 5.5m, 6.8m and 6.8m Techno with new comers to the Champions Cup final the North Lincs Invaders and West Kirby Warriors taking wins in four of the five classes.

The happy winners, got loads of prizes like Naish ripper rig, from Naish and Tushingham Dino rig, from Tushingham. Also a Bic Techno 293 board from Riks Sport and Starboard Kids Pro Sonic board from Tushingham.  And it didn’t end there with the whole team getting a Beijing 2008 Olympic buoyancy aid thanks to the RYA.

Special Merit Awards went to Zara Petts from the Hythe Hotshots and Annalee Hargreaves from the Loch Insh Monsters both of whom demonstrated a fantastic attitude and determination reflecting the essence of T15.

Special thanks to T15’s generous sponsors, Neilson, Tushingham/Starboard, Ultra Sport/Bic, Windsurf magazine, Boards magazine and Neil Pryde, without whom this great event couldn’t happen.
