Sauntons Surfboat

Attention all boaties, Saunton's SurfBoat will soon be with us,
I will keep you updated on its arrival. In the meantime please see below pictures of Saunton's boat and how the boats were selected.

The draw was done on Sunday 6th December at the UKSRL GM.
Saunton SLSC was placed in draw 2 comprising all of our new development clubs from across the southwest and Wales.

The draw was done in the style of the FA cup draw; marked table tennis balls were drawn blind by an impartial person; clubs from one pot then boats from another.

Saunton drew boat 10, a CLYMER made boat in about 2000-ish (dates have been estimated because the original labels have worn off all the boats).
This boat is almost identical to the black Croyde boat that some of us are familiar with.

If you would like to get involved please do not hestitate to contact me.

Thanks James


Sauntons Surfboat 2015

Saunton has recently taken part in the National Surf Boat Competition,
with thanks to Croyde SLSC for the loan on their boat and Chris Lane for Coaching & Sweeping,
We hope to have our own boat soon. James would be keen to hear from anyone who would be interested in joining the Crew
