A boat crew shall consist of five competitors, four of whom shall be “rowers” and a “sweep” who controls the boat by use of a sweep oar and commands to the rowers. Boat crews start at the water’s edge holding their boats ready. On the starting signal, crews row around their assigned turning buoy situated approximately 500metres off shore and return to the beach.

Surf boat rowers need to be at least 16 years of age and hold a Bronze Medallion to be eligible to compete. If your interested in giving surf boat rowing a go, but don’t have your Bronze we would love to hear from you! Stockton SLSC offers Bronze Courses throughout the season.
