Boats Corner

Training – Thanks to all those who turned up for the training session down south last Saturday – good experience for those that were able to get out. The training master schedule will be out this week and put up on the notice boards in the Gym and next to the Boat equipment locker.


Robe – Robe is coming up soon. We will have a boaties meeting in two weeks to coincide with the Club draw to discuss details.  For accommodation please ensure that you contact Craig Lienert ASAP if you wish to stay with the Club when we are down there.


Rowers – We need another rower for the Mens A team and any U23 Men. If you would like to put your hand up or give it a try please give Aaron a Call


From ASRL some information for new boat that we could be in the draw for and news for open ladies: –


The committee have now confirmed that we will put a brand new surfboat up for grabs as a prize that will be drawn at the ASRL Open. The boat must be and remain prominently branded “Team Navy” for a minimum of 3 years.

This is how the competition will work:

  1. At each Navy event day conducted in WA, SA, Tas, Vic & Qld (NSW Crews see item 7 below) each attending crew will receive 2 x Tokens into the draw
  2. At the Season Launch held on 5 Dec at Surfers Paradise attending crews will receive 2 Tokens
  3. At the Sat of Manly carnival you will receive 1 x Token
  4. At the ASRL Short Course Championship event at Manly attending crews will receive 2 x Tokens
  5. At the ASRL Open attending crews will receive 4 x Tokens
  6. To be eligible to receive the Token each crew must have joined as a member of the ASRL via any of the systems available and all crew members MUST be wearing the NAVY singlet; NO SINGLET AND NOT JOINED UP NO TOKEN
  7. For NSW crews; as no specific Navy Series is available you will collect tokens at Coffs, Mollymook, Manly (Sat event) plus the special events noted above and you must have completed a crew membership before the date of the actual Token Day event AND BE WEARING THE Navy singlet
  8. In all cases you must be wearing your Navy singlets as a crew to be eligible 

How the boat prize works:

  1. The ASRL will make available a sum of $30,000 inc GST to the boat winner which is to include the branding logo “Team Navy”
  2. The winner can then negotiate the purchase with the boat builder of choice
  3. If the boat costs more the winner will be required to make up the shortfall
  4. If the boat costs less the winner can use the balance on other equipment
  5. The draw will be made and announced at the ASRL Open in Feb Sun 21

As we close on organising the Open some key decisions have now been made:

  • Racing Divisions:
    • We are excited to announce that at this year’s Open we have added two female divisions. This means that 8 divisions of racing will take home medals against the standard 6 of the past. Divisions are:
    • Open Male
    • Open Female
    • “A” Reserve Male
    • “A” Reserve Female
    • U23 Male
    • U23 Female
    • U19 Male
    • U19 Female
    • The U19 Female is a complete new division
    • Open Female will commence racing as the one division. After  4, 5 or 6 rounds the top 24 point score crews will split into the Open Female division while the next 24 crews will shift into the new “A” Reserve division of racing for the finals
