Boat series is still up for grabs

WITH one round remaining Woolgoolga Surf Life Saving Club can still take the 2014-15 Hoey Moey North Coast Surf Boats series.

Woolgoolga staged the penultimate gathering on the weekend and won three divisions to put crews to within 18 points of series leaders, Kempsey-Crescent Head.

Boat captain Trevor Clark is confident of fighting back to claim the championship on March 7 at Park Beach, Coffs Harbour.

"Woopi had a great day with wins in open men, masters 200 and masters women," he said.

"The Seahawks, who are the leading men's crew, are off to Shellharbour on February 20 in good form for the Australian Surf Rowers League titles.

"We're looking to bring home the medals and top off preparations for the North Coast finals. We may not have as many crews as Kempsey-Crescent Head but are still in with a big chance.

"Our small but determined band of rowers is right out there trying to win that championship at Coffs Harbour," Clark added.
