Somerton Boaties Create History

In what is a first for surf boat rowing at the Somerton SLSC congratulations to the “Shore Things” in Open Men and “BSB” in Under 23 Men for qualifying to represent South Australia!

They will compete at the Interstates on February 17 in NSW. Somerton will have five crews at the same competition, the Australian Surf Rowers League Open which forms part of the weekend.

Special mention to the “Sea Duction” (Under 19 Men) and “Swell Guys” (Open) who missed out on selection by a nose.

The event will be live streamed on the Team Navy ASRL Facebook page and via ASRL Youtube channel. More details to be released closer to the event.
