VALE - Ross and Andrew POWELL

The Australian Surf Rowers League is devastated to hear the tragic news of the drowning of two highly respected members of the Port Campbell SLSC in Victoria. Andrew Powell, 32, and his 71-year-old father Ross, both experienced lifesavers, attempted to help a 30-year-old male when he got into difficulty while wading in heavy surf at the mouth of Sherbrook River about 10.40am on Sunday 21 April 2019.

The two men, who were Life Members of the Port Campbell Surf Lifesaving Club, were unable to be saved when their boat flipped and they died at the scene.

A third member, Phillip Younis, is in The Alfred hospital in a serious but stable condition, and our thoughts are with this member and his family and friends. 

Andrew Powell, who joined the SES at 16, was also a dedicated farmer like his father and won young farmer of the year in 2017.

The men’s family released a statement through Victoria Police in recognition of their bravery and selflessness:

"Ross (Po) dedicated much of his life to contributing to his community. But above all, he was a cherished husband to Val, a dedicated father to Brett, Natalie, Dale, Kerryn and Andy, and dearly loved brother to Marea. He was very much loved and respected by many. Andrew (Andy) was always by his dad’s side and a beloved partner to Amber, son and brother. We will miss our beautiful, big-hearted Andy and were so proud of the person he was – gentle, compassionate, loving and selfless – like his father. We are heartbroken. Our thoughts and love are with Phillip (Fuzz) Younis and his family whilst he recovers."

ASRL Open 2019

We are happy to announce the draft order of events for the 2019 ASRL Open! Please see the attached.

Please note that Reserve Women are now with the Reserve Men on Friday in block two. We see this as a positive move for the event. Some key reasons are;
* The U23 Men seeding (Interstate crews) was deemed as an unfair process due to the lower numbers. The seeding process for Reserve Men and Women due to the larger entry numbers makes more sense than with categories with lower numbers
* We hope that some Masters crews will give Reserve Women a crack in the afternoon block of racing on Friday
* We see having the U23 Men on Saturday on the same day as all of the other U19 and U23 crews as a positive change for competitor engagement

Please note that as per previous years, the program is always subject to change due to weather conditions, final entry numbers etc.

Entries are NOW OPEN! Get your Competition Officer to visit carnival.sls.com.au/ and enter via 'ASRL' section.

The 2019 ASRL Open is proudly supported by Destination NSW and Team Navy. Visit Sydney.com for travelling information including accommodation options.

ASRL Open 2018 

We said we would't run from surf and we didn't BUT boy what a weekend and that is due to many people holding hands and working hard to keep everything rolling along!

Our Referee Tamara Brawn and Sectionals Peter van Duren and Bobo White lead a great team of Officials who to the last one we owe a huge vote of thanks. The girls and ladies in the Bunker doing the draws didn't see the sun for 3 days which is an amazing effort and the pressure they are under has to be witnessed to understand.

Our Water Safety IRB Crews led by Peter Burst were tireless and the Safety Response Team led by Joel Wiseman did a great job in the way they monitored and communicated during the three days.

The Elouera Surf Club and their band of workers didn't stop for the duration. The Sutherland Shire Council and Staff were wonderful to work with and the Shire Lifeguards, you are a great team of professionals. Not just in the way you assisted us in decision making but your rescue skill out on the water is first class. Thanks to all those who assisted and competed, creating such a great weekend for all.

Full Results will be posted here very shortly!  In the meantime, for your viewing pleasure we have posted nearly 6.5 hours of the Live Stream of Day 3 in HD and without interuption below.

OMANU Surf Club in New Zealand are seeking the use of an old boat trailer from the land of Aus. to transport a new surf boat to NZ from Sydney.

They have a new DKG coming from Sydney in February/March and require a throw-away boat trailer just to get the boat onto the ship and over to NZ, so they don't have to build cradles etc.
It can literally be a surplus trailer that a club wants to get rid of.

If you or your surf club can assist and simply want to get rid of an old trailer then please contact the OMANU surf club contact listed below.

Omanu Surf Club Contact is: Ronald Dobbs  Ph: +64 272 010 266 or ronaldjdobbs@gmail.com

Crews should note the final program change for the Nth Cronulla event with 117 crew entries. Racing must be kept tight, event start time achieved and tight turnaround times met for us to fit in a day of good racing.

All draws will be set up on Friday based on this program and hopefully only needing to make minor adjustments after check in on Sat.

Crews should note the three Block check in times and also note that no time in the program exists to stop racing for crew warm ups before your event. U23 crews should also make themselves aware of their new check-in time:

The time slots for report are going to be:
• Open crews sign in at 7.30, gun at 8 no later
• U23 crews report in at 9.30
• U19 and reserve crews report in at 11.30
This has each block on the beach ready to race before their time slot.

Note also that some surf is predicted so as always program changes may be necessary. Racing in all divisions will start with Point Score rounds. Final division program will be detailed at check-in.
