Surf boat crews sending challenge

PARK Beach will be pumping with adrenalin today as the 2010-11 Hoey Moey North Coast Surf Boat Series reaches the grand final stage.

The season has been the most dramatic since the premiership commenced in 1994, with smaller surf clubs upstaging their bigger rivals and occasions where seas became so big the day was turned into a smash-up derby.

Organiser Brook Down said racing begins from 11am and the top point scorers are still not assured of taking out individual divisions.

“There’s no cut-off in the points and everybody qualifies, giving them the opportunity to take part in the final stage,” he said.

“With double points on offer, it’s possible one of the outsiders can get up on the day should they get a clear run.

“That’s the luck of the draw and even if you’ve been going well all year, if you get a bad result one of the tail-enders can chase you down.”

Woolgoolga will start favourites in several divisions and are way ahead on the overall club championship.

Host club Coffs Harbour is in second place with Minnie Water-Wooli in third berth.

Presentations will take place at a function held at Park Beach Hoey Moey following the event.
