Red Beach’s surf boat rowers spanning more than five decades will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with one another in November.
The club is organising a Boaties’ Reunion which has, as its theme, ‘Red Beach Surf Boats through the Decades’.
On the invitation list will be everyone who has either rowed or swept a Red Beach surf boat since the first boat made an appearance on the water in the late 1960s.
“Every effort has been made to track down the rowers & sweeps from the past 50-plus years and we’ve had a lot of success in locating them,” said former sweep Ted Taylor who is co-organising the event.
“We’re now in a position to make regular contact with everyone by way of flyers, emails, Facebook, and the club website to provide information on the reunion,” he added.
More than 200 current and former rowers & sweeps are expected to attend the reunion, to be held at the Red Beach clubrooms on Sunday 22 November from 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm.
