 Bilgola Surf Life Saving Club Hosts Round One of 2015-16 Season Boat Premiership: A Great Day of Competition

Saturday, 7 Nov 2015

Bilgola Surf Lifesaving Club set a high standard with the first surf boat carnival for the season launching a great a competition at Bilgola beach today.

Over 50 surf boat crews took to the 1.5metre surf under blue sky and sunshine.

It was a rough start on the high tide with lots of roll overs and slews and plenty of crews found themselves out of the boat and into the water.

“It was a great day and a strong round of competition to kick start the season, all the Bilgola Surf club crews put in a huge effort”, said BSLSC President, Romilly Madew.

Spectators on the shores of Bilgola beach enjoyed a great morning watching the action on the waves as the surf boats pushed through.

Caroline and Marcus Blackmore were on hand to congratulate the winning crews in each division, along with Bronwyn Bishop MP Member for Mackellar.
