DICKY BEACH SURF BOATS
Dicky beach SurfBoat section welcome all new rowers, we have a proud history in competition in surf boats. We currently have rowers in crews that are Queensland Champions, Australian Champions and World Champions. Our main focus is team work and having fun together as a boat section and as a club
How It Works
A boat crew consists of five competitors: four “rowers” and one “sweep” who steers the boat with a sweep oar and issues directions to the rowers. Boat crews begin at the water’s edge, readying their craft. When the starting signal is given crews begin to row out to sea and around their designated turning buoy located roughly 400 meters off shore before returning to the shoreline. The first crew to pass their boat between the finish flags on the beach is the winner.
