ASRL Noticeboard

Quick ASRL updates, important news, what's going on, where to be and anything else you need to know about Surf Rowing!

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.
