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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
