Open Men's crew claim 2018 George Bass Surf Boat Marathon

What an effort...our Open Men's crew remain undefeated in the George Bass Surf Boat Marathon. The guys completely dominated the event winning every single leg ...7 days 190kms of rowing in varying & testing conditions from Bateman's Bay to Eden Harbour. 

Congratulations to Paul Jones (sweep) Aron Davis, Adam Barlow, Paul Barlow, Mitchell Roberts, Albert Smeaton, Iszak Lunney, Kyle Mercer & Lachlan O'Grady on a great achievement. Way back in 1979 Bulli won all 7 legs with Russell Jones sweeping them (Paul's dad).

Our Veteran Men's crew of LIncoln Costello (sweep), Chris Mercer, Rod Mercer, Jason Byrne, Nigel Taylor, Craig Lunney, Glenn MacMillan, Chad Caruthers & Peter McLaren battled away for the 7 days and also completed the course. Big effort with the limited training sessions, but these guys love the challenge and also enjoy the social atmosphere.

Behind every George Bass Surf Boat Marathon there is a great support network. First there is the support boats, this year thankyou to Paul Scriberras & Mitch Roberts for the use of their power boats plus drivers Ron Davis & Dean Roberts & crewman over the 7 days namely Garry Roberts, Scott Lunney, Peta Lunney, Heath Mercer, Ashley Rae, Georgia Green, Victoria MacMillan. Moving camp & cleaning up a couple of times during the event, towing trailers, transporting rowers to the start each day, preparing meals, massaging rowers aches & pains (Christine Churchill)...Marcelle Mercer, Michelle Lunney, Rhonda Carruthers plus family & friends that assisted over the 7 day period..heaps of kids to look after. From the rowers thankyou thankyou...without you they couldn't have done it. If we have missed anyone apologies 👏👏👍👍🍺🍺 #mysurflife #georgebass#bullislsc #supportteam #teambulli #mysurflife #champions #georgebassvictory
