Sunday Club Surf Race and other Curly competitions
Most Sundays South Curly runs a club swim which is handicapped to allow everyone to have a fighting chance of taking first-to-the-line honours. Our long-standing Handicapper, Bob Buckingham is down on the beach from about 10am to organise the race with his usual phlegmatic style, collecting names and rounding everyone up! The club swim is open to anyone with an award for their age (SRC, Bronze etc) and consists of a short run to the water’s edge, swim out to the cans and back – c.800m in total (depending on high/low tide and how much alcohol was consumed the night before by those placing the cans!).
Bob keeps tabs on the result from each race and will provide periodic updates on this page and in the club newsletter (Pooh Bear). All the results are totted up at the end of the season and the ultimate winner earns themselves a prestigious award at the annual club presentation.
For those yet to take part….now’s the time to start! Keep your eyes peeled for this and other Club competition details in the Club Calendar and check the attached race schedule here
As a safety precaution, please note that you must now wear a pink competition vest when competing– no exceptions! These can be purchased from the club on most Sunday mornings at a cost of $15, but don’t leave it too late to get the right size. Watch South Curly waves go pink in December!!
