Full speed ahead for Woolgoolga surf crews

WOOLGOOLGA crews are picking up the pace, as the North Coast Surf Boat series draws closer.

Boat captain Trevor Clark said one crew had been in Sydney for the 12km Rooster's Run surf boat marathon down the Georges River.

Starting at the quaintly-named Cattle Duffer's Flat at Revesby, the race finished at St George Sailing Club.

"A great effort to finish third in reserve division," Clark said.

"Our very young crew performed above expectations.

"They were narrowly beaten by winners Bulli and second placegetter North Wollongong.

"Members backed up clinic and hard training with renowned coach Bob Shirlaw, who gave the lads a two-hour session.

"It's sure to give us even more speed this season and some great technique and training ideas."

The boats will do short course training for the carnivals starting November 15 and 16 at Scotts Head.
