National surf boat event heading to Bulli Beach in February

PLANNING is ramping-up with only weeks to go before the 2023 Australian Surf Rowers League (ASRL) Open comes to Bulli Beach.

Bulli Surf Life Saving Club is keen to talk to community groups that may be available to provide assistance with barbecue and parking operations over the four day event. The surf club is also looking for a coffee van operator.

A spokesman from the club said the ‘Open’ is a national event, with over 300 surf boat crews competing across four days, from February 9 to 12.

“It’s a great opportunity to see the best of the best, as well as a significant economic boost for local business and the community,” the spokesperson said.
