On Friday night just gone the Boaties had their annual awards normally held in Albany after the Albany Surf Craft Challenge, which was cancelled this year due to Covid 19.
The proud winner this year went to Chantell Mansell with Greg Stewart runner up boatie of the year. Well done to you both as the award is about what you do both in and out of the boats.
As well as the awards presented we had the announcement that our long serving Boat Captain Murray Geneff was stepping down. Murray has served as captain for 13 years of the boats and during that time has kept our boats and equipment in top order and this is much appreciated by both our rowers as well as our club board. Thanks to Murray for a job well done.
Now that things are starting to get back to some normality the Boats will stare to work towards next season. Anyone wishing to join the Group contact myself (Watto) on 0419 471 470 and I will get you started on the right path.
Your in boats,

Patrol Strategy Workshop – Saturday 25th July 9am
What is the future for Patrols at Sorrento? What do we do well, what could we do better?
Do you want to have a say in how we structure our patrols in the future?
Although training numbers are up and we have a large number of new SRC and Bronze members coming through, our attendance rates are at an all time low.
We are planning on holding a Patrol Strategy Workshop on Saturday 25th July starting at 9am to discuss all things patrols and value everyone’s input.
If you would like to be involved please let Jess know.
We have had alot of members not following the 16 people in the changerooms rule over the weekend.
Please note, that if we cant stick to the rules then we will need to close them again.
For the safety of our members, please follow the below rules when using the changerooms.
All changerooms are limited to 16 people (this includes parents and kids)
Showers are limited to 3 mins ONLY. This is so we can get everyone in to have a shower and out of the changerooms as fast as we can.
If you come in and see 16 people in the shower, please wait out the front until someone comes out.
Parents, please keep an eye on your kids in the changerooms and make sure you are helping them stick to the rules.
Thanks for understanding!
