Good luck to our Open Men’s & Veteran Men’s crews that will be contesting the 2014 George Bass Surf Boat Marathon commencing on Sunday 29 December from Batemans Bay and concluding on Saturday 4 January at Eden. It is 7 days of rowing over approximately 190kms, a demanding race testing everybody’s physical & mental capabilities.
Our Open Men’s crew should give the race a big shake with a likely duel with Moruya Vikings who are the defending champions. The boys have been training hard for this event over the past 3 months and are ready.
Our Veteran Men’s crew have also been putting in the hard yards on the water & in the gym in preparation for the event. It should be very interesting to see who will challenge these guys on the water & also in their social activities.
Of course behind the scenes the planning & logistics of this tour has been gradually gaining momentum. Team Manager & Club President Keith Caldwell is very excited to be leading the charge with the crews & support staff.
