Red Beach crews off to Whangamata

Bay of Plenty venue to host annual event

Two Red Beach surf boat crews will head for Whangamata to compete in the Surf Boat Spectacular on 2nd January.
The event doubles as Round Two of the NZ Surf Boat Series and race organisers are confident of 40-50 crews taking part. The growth in numbers is the result of a widespread interest in surf boat rowing in New Zealand.
The annual event at the popular Bay of Plenty venue features two unique types of surf boat racing, namely the 2km Dash for Cash around the island off Whangamata Beach, and the short course sprint series.
