Two Red Beach surf boat crews head to the capital this weekend for Round One of the NZ Surf Boat Series. They will compete at Paekakariki Beach on Saturday 30th November.
Shane ‘Bugsy’ O’Halloran will sweep both crews – the Boomers in the open men’s division and the Sirens in the open women’s division. The Sirens will be looking to repeat last year’s success at the same venue where they won their division.
“Both crews have been training well, they’re ready for the weekend and they will be very competitive,” said Shane.
“The crews are aware of their responsibilities in terms of performance both on and off the water, carrying the sponsors’ logos and the club’s name and colours,” he added.
Dates and venues for the 4-race series are:
Round 1 – Paekakariki, 30th November; Round 2 – Whangamata, 2nd January; Round 3 – Piha, 1st February; Round 4 – Waihi, 8th February.
