Surf rowing event at Longbeach on Saturday

This Saturday will see surf boats racing at Longbeach, just north of Batemans Bay, as a part of the Australian Surf Rowing League’s Open 2020 competition.

The event is relocating from Mollymook for the day to avoid predicted poor weather and surf conditions. Racing starts at seven in the morning and the competition will end around 5pm.

Eurobodalla Council’s event coordinator Leisa Tague said heavier than usual traffic was expected in the area, with up to 50 vehicles with boat trailers arriving on Saturday morning, along with additional operational crew and spectators.

“It’s an elimination event and as competitors drop out, we expect any parking congestion to ease from midday on,” she said.

Ms Tague said the relocation was a good example of neighbouring shires working together to keep events running smoothly.

Saturday’s racing starts with U19 male, U19 female and U23 female, followed late morning with open male, open female and U23 male. Three rounds of Tran Tasman (AUS v NZ) will take place throughout the day.
