George Bass Marathon

Sunday 29th December, 2019 - Saturday 4th January, 2020

George BassThis is the longest, toughest surfboat race in the world!

Teams and single ski paddlers undergo a gruelling seven days on the open ocean, covering 190km’s of the coastline between Batemans Bay & Eden and contending with variable and wild surf conditions to launch and land their boats. They are elite athletes, skilled lifeguards and adventurers at heart.

The very first Bass was run in 1975 and was the brainchild of Bega Newspaper editor Curly Annabel who wanted to trace the journey of early explorer Surgeon Commander George Bass in 1797.

Surgeon Commander Bass with a crew of 6-navel oarsman rowed a longboat not unlike surf’s original double-ended clinker from Port Phillip down the NSW coast and around the southern end on Victoria mapping the coastline as they went. Annabel was at first thought mad and received no support, until then NSW State Secretary and Cronulla boat sweep, the legendary Nick Dixon, took up the cause and the rest, as they say, is history.

Now entering it’s 40th year, the annual Sapphire Coast Week of Golf is the high point of the golfing calendar for the Pambula Merimbula Golf Club and for the Far South Coast region at large.

Described by the influential Inside Golf magazine as ‘the finest tournament of its type in Australia’, the competition annually attracts around 700-800 entrants from every state and territory as well as numerous overseas visitors from such places as the United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore and New Zealand.

Highly regarded for its friendly atmosphere and professional organisation the tournament has encouraged many return visits from golfers, some having participated for more than 30 years.

The Week of Golf comprises nine days of women’s, men’s and mixed competitions. The week concludes with the Pambula Merimbula Men’s Open Championship on the final Saturday and Sunday.
