Glynn Dromey Pairs Competition – 29th April, 2017

Arriving at the Lancelin beach sign on point with the sun yet to be seen it was more like a scene from the south coast; it was freezing! At this point I was wishing I had bought my 5mm winter suit rather than the 3mm summer suit! As the pairs began to arrive the anticipation was building. 14 pairs signed in and after a quick safety meeting the 2017 Glynn Dromey pairs spearfishing competition was underway. Quick off the blocks were last years champs Mael and Troy in the nifty v17r; they had set the bar high last year and weren’t about to lower it this time around.… Read more

With the new spearfishing season upon us, we saw a new spearfishing retail outlet unleash on Perth. Spear West (www.spearwest.com.au), with a serious online presence and a retail store front in Osborne, its a store that will meet and exceed the needs of the most particular spearo. The WA Undersea Club was most excited when SpearWest offered to sponsor the first north of the river, SpearWest Metro Masters! With some epic prizes on offer the hype in the WAUC only comp was high.

The forecasted conditions were almost ideal, with a late shower in the day. We weren’t disappointed when the day came.… Read more

Dive and Fish Rotto Cray Competition 2016

 
Conditions were looking ideal leading up to the competition, sub 1m swell and under 10 knot winds for the morning. 15+ knot winds were forecasted for the mid afternoon.

Come weigh in time, jumbos weren’t frequently weighed as in previous years. Depending on where one dove, the sea was relatively surgey and saw many jumbo holes empty or they were hiding deep sheltering from the surge.
 
With $1000 worth of prizes being given away, it saw 12 WAUC boats on the beach come the 1pm deadline. With some 45 people in attendance under the gazebo for the free food and weigh in proceedings in the picturesque Thomson’s bay.… Read more
