Woopi surf crews back on water

WOOLGOOLGA SLSC surfboat crews are back on the water chasing more premiership glory.

A great team effort has Woopi heading the club championship after the opening two rounds at Arrawarra.

Club spokesperson Trevor Clark said many rowers backed up in extra crews showing great club spirit.

“The open crew had a win and a second placing to show what a force they will be when all are on deck,” he said.

“Our reserve crew was a real surprise packet despite limited preparations and the underage guys are showing they are really getting it together.”

Showing ominous form and hinting they are ready to follow on from last year, the under-19s won both their races and the 160 and 200 masters look set for a winning summer.

“All crews had a great time and we think they have been a credit to the club by helping out where needed,” Clark added.

“Everybody is looking forward to the next carnival at Scotts Head on November 21-22, followed by the interstate craft carnival the following weekend.

“We are looking for more interested rowers, so come along Sunday mornings or in the afternoon on Tuesday and Thursday. It’s a great sport with great camaraderie.”
