Boat crew

The Killer Bees (Open Men) and the Guard Dogs (Juniors and Open Women) Avoca Beach Reilly and Sons Sponsored Surfboat Crews led all 3 legs of the Australian SLSA 2018 Surfboat Relay Champ’s today Wednesday the 18th April held at Scarborough Beach, Western Australia after a achieving a massive earlier lead by the Open Men’s Crew to be only beaten on the run finish for Gold, finishing with an unlucky second with daylight third.

Great row by the young Under 23 Women’s Crew rowing against the more experienced Open Women Crews.

The future looks very secure for the Club with all three Crews being so young.

All individual categories of racing commence tomorrow with all Finals to be held on Sunday.

The young blokes from Avoca Beach’s Open Men’s Crew were very, very unlucky after leading the Final going in to the halfway bouy turns in Saturday’s 2018 SLSA Australian Champ.’s in Perth WA, before Batemans Bay caught a number of runners coming home.

Avoca Beach got nothing, then they, Collaroy and Bulli charged Batemans Bay again who were stuck in a rip, short of the finishing line and looked liked winning it, before hitting a back wash, shot up in the air, then rode a 4 to 5 foot “tube” on a massive sucking shore dump and flipped, regathered their gear, turned the boat upright and pushed the boat over the line.

North Cronulla way back in 6th place just pipped them for 2nd. Collaroy and Bulli were both disqualified (DNF) after also flipping over and suffering a broken leg, broken arm, broken ribs and massive bruising amongst the 4 boats, including South Curl Curl.

The first two places Crews, Bulli and North Cronulla who rowed in and back, out of alleys 5 and 6 were smiled on by the “Huey” and avoided all the carnage.

Avoca Beach’s end in alley 1 turned really nasty and caused TWO false starts. Dickie Brierty and his Killer Bee’s must have killed a 100 black cats this season, with their unlucky multiple losses (2nd and 3rd places) with a number major Carnival wins during the season.

Congratulations to the Batemans Bay Crew though for becoming a part of history in winning the premier category of surfboat racing and they thoroughly deserved their win.

During Saturday’s Finals yesterday, Avoca Beach Open Men’s Crew were undefeated in their 3 earlier Preliminary Elimination Final rows, leading in to the Final 6, after their 4 lead up rows on Friday.

With ALL guys being 22, bar Bundy who is 23, they will no doubt win a couple of Aussie Golds before they retire. Dickie  B. is a magnificent sweep, coach and mentor. He is a quite unique guy and a winner.

Plus throw in Matty Mitchell’s Junior Mens Crew who finished 4th overall in their Final and Andrew Collins who finished 6th in the Junior Women’s Final, then add the Clubs premier Open Women’s Crew returning next season, plus both Under 23 Men and Women Crews who made the last 12, overall the Avoca Beach Boaties look to be in a very strong position for the next decade.
