Broulee surfboat crews perform well at Long Beach


Broulee had three surfboat crews compete in Round Two of the South Coast Surf Boat Premiership last weekend. Batemans Bay was the host club, and even after the carnival had to be moved to Long Beach because of a dangerous bar at Malua Bay, it was still the farthest south the competition had travelled for a while.

The flat conditions sparked a remark from a competing club that Broulee’s Canberra crews had brought Lake Burley Griffin conditions with them, but it was the crews that could milk runs from the slight swell coming through that stole races.

The Men’s Vets crew, Mixed Grill, (Morgan Freemantle, Jeff Dunne, Steve Moore, Pete Shaw), had a clean sweep of all four rounds and the Women’s Vets crew, Griffin Braves (Robyn Trenton, Susan McKeag, Vikki Fischer, Brenda Lofthouse), won three. Both crews topped their divisions. The Capitals Women’s Reserve crew, Capitals (Jackie Jones, Annie McAppion, Claire Forbes), were also back on the water and made a good showing.

Congratulations also to host club Batemans Bay who performed strongly in the open’s divisions.
