Navy Surf Rowers League series back to Park Beach

THIS weekend's Coffs Harbour Craft Carnival will see the return of the Navy Australian Surf Rowers League series to Park Beach.

The second and third rounds of the New South Wales leg of the series will involve more than 100 crews from more than 35 surf lifesaving clubs throughout the state.

Navy spokesman Commodore David Letts said the Navy series offered fast and furious action.

"The race distance of 800 metres is out through the surf and back to the beach which means intense racing with extremely tight finishes," he said.

"With good size surf predicted this weekend and sunny weather, thrills and spills are expected.

"Great viewing will be available from the beach and surf club deck."

Each crew will row in round robin racing starting 8am on Saturday with the top six crews to race off in the final in each division.

The series comprises 26 events around Australia from November until February next year, held at some of the country's premier venues including Park Beach.

The Australian Surf Rowers League has more than 3000 members from more than 260 clubs who can form more than 450 crews.
