TEAM NAVY JOINS FORCES IN THE 2016 GEORGE BASS SURF MARATHON
This is the Longest, Toughest Surfboat Race in the world. The George Bass Surf Marathon commenced in 1975 and surf skis were added to the event in the 1990’s. It is a truly unique experience for all competitors; friendships are made for life once you become part of the Bass family.
George Bass Marathon Race Director Andrew Edmunds said they were very pleased to, again, have Team Navy be a part of the 2016 event.
“The Bass goes hand in hand with the Navy lifestyle – team work, dedication, camaraderie and fitness, Team Navy will be providing valuable assistance to the event in terms of logistic support and you’ll be able to see them every day during the event at the start and finish beaches.” Andrew Edmunds
The Royal Australian Navy,Team Navy and GBSM relationship has been ongoing since 2008 and is beneficial in raising the profile of lifesaving and helping gain community support.
