Congratulations Margaret Simpson-Lee, who once again, waved the flag for Tamarama at the Aussies 2018! Margie managed to get points for Tama at 2 events! In a very tough field, but snagged 5th in the surf race and 5th in the flags! She nearly got 4th in the flags but lost it when a competitor dived over the top - after 20 rounds! Competition is fun and excellent to improve your skills and team building. Sign up for training and competition in 2018/2019. :)
