Smith wins silver in ocean paddling
Umina's Jemma Smith has won the Women's silver medal in her debut appearance at the 20 Beaches Surfski and Stand-up Paddleboard Classic.

The race saw competitors take to the surf and make their way from Palm Beach to Collaroy, with events from junior through to the Olympic and masters levels with Smith contesting the Female Open Ski.
Jemma came in second behind event veteran Danielle McKenzie by just over two minutes.
The surf sports athlete was also in the midst of the NSW Ironwoman series and was set to compete for Surf Life Saving Central Coast's Interbranch Championship team.
