Day 1 of state titles was held at Cape Schanck. 17 divers signed in with 16 weighing in. Although the conditions weren’t spectacular everyone agreed that conditions were definitely diveable on both sides. The majority of divers descended the stairs and started out on the western side, some divers made the long swim towards Fingal but were met with dirty water. Fish were present but but it was hard work to find them. Most divers picked up a few as soon as the jumped in then didn’t get anything till the end.
At the halfway mark the tide turned and sucked some people around to the eastern side where they found more fish and clearer water! Nam from Geelong jumped out early to fire up the bbq and feed the masses.

Some interesting fish got weighed in including Chris’s 345g barber perch and Kim’s 470g red cod. Nam shot a jacket that had a hook in it? Couple of nice 3.4kg crays pulled too.

Big shout out to those who helped organise both before and during. Thanks to Nam from Geelong Freedivers for cooking the BBQ.

The scores from Day 1:
Blake Riddle 13 species 1469.95 100%
Kim Adair 12 species 1378.05 93.74%

Day 2 of Victorian State Titles was held at Koonya back beach. There wasn’t the almost glass out as predicted. A solid southerly wind had picked up over night coupled with the 16 second swell interval meant for a very rough dive. Many divers came in early and others had to have a mid dive test. Visibility varied from 1m to about 7m which made for some low scores.
Although there were trying conditions some divers still managed to pull some cracking catches including Blake’s 1.315kg snapper.
Rob ended up taking out the day with a solid bag of 10 species closed followed by Dean and Kim with 9 each. Blake followed up with 8.
Big thank you to those who helped organise the day and those who set up the weigh station. Thank you to the chef who kept the snags warm despite the rain.

Meritorious fish include: Whiting 735g (Kim) Warehou 570g (Rob) Red Cod 545g (Dean) Warehou 545g (Dean) Dusky 3985g (Kade) Blue throat 1640g (Kurt) Snapper 1315g (Blake) Dusky 4350g (Paul)

The final scores of the day are

Rob Torelli 10 species 1114.9pts
Dean Riddle 9 species 1048.65pts
Kim Adair 9 species 1047.7pts
Blake Riddle 8 species 902.8ps
Malachi Green 8 species 889.2pts
Dave Smith 8 species 882.6pts
Paul Dorfstatter 7 species 814.8pts
Chris Rogers 6 species 658.15pts
Spencer Gubbins 5 species 549.3pts
Kade Beckley 4 species 460.75pts
Kurt Beckley 4 species 435.86pts
Marcus Dorfstatter 3 species 321.9
Kaylah Charles 1 species 110.45pts
Odie’s Charles 1 species 104.1pts

Which means the overall scores are....

Kim Adair 2425.75pts Open Champion
Blake Riddle 2372.75pts
Rob Torelli 2366.4pts
Dean Riddle 2063.85pts
Malachi Green 2024.65pts Junior Champion
