Bunbury Plays Host To Stop #2 Of Western Australian N1SCO Series

The beautiful town of Bunbury was location for Western Australia’s 2nd N1SCO event for 2014. Located approximately 175 Kilometres south of Perth, Bunbury houses a Port services the Farming, Timber and Mining industries of the South West of Australia. The picturesque bay of beauty made for an epic arena for N1SCO.

After the N1SCO Australian Tour hit Safety Bay just the weekend previous, it was evident that WA and N1SCO were forging a great friendship. Bringing the N1SCO racing out of the city was great fun and attracted the locals to head on down and check out what all the fuss was about. It was great to have participation from competitors as young as 14 and an even entry in both the Men’s and Women’s divisions.

After a week of massive swell and howling winds, we were lucky to have the conditions calm down enough to spin into action. The random passing showers and abating winds didn’t alarm the Bunbury crew as they took on the elements with 200m, 400m and a shortened 750m sprint coarse.

Melissa Hynynen and Ben DeChanaed proved to be too much for the field taking straight wins in each division and Melissa’s relay team with Wayne Hughes also taking a win for the day. In the spirit of great fun and excitement, everyone had a ball with smiles and laughs all round.
