Over the weekend of September 17th and 18th, the newly formed Jimmy’s Beach Aquatic Club ran its first ever ‘Mullet Run’ along with the Myall Classic Kayaking and Paddling event on the Myall River.
Jimmy’s Beach Aquatic Club was recently formed to support surfboard rowing opportunities in the local community enjoyed by many Tea Garden and Hawk’s Nest locals.
With Jimmy’s Beach Swimming Mullets allowing its logo to be used, Tea Gardens Hawks Nest also has surf boat rowing mallets and hosts a “Mullet Run” event on the weekends.
More than 35 locals from Tea Garden Hawks Nest now paddle surf boats with the mullet.
Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Mullets joined the Myall Classic on Saturday morning from Mungo Brush through Tamboy to finish at Anzac Park Tea Gardens. Over 160 paddlers took part in the Myall Classic.
The Mallet Run event and Jimmy’s Beach Aquatic Club are heavily supported by local businesses.
Without asking for support, we saw what was evolving and asked local businesses to get involved to support this local TGHN activity.
To Gardner Rose, Parry’s Cove, Hawks Nest Beach Real Estate, Silk Islands, Jeromy Nolan Travel, Peter McClennan Denture Clinic, Quasar Electrical, MJB Plumbing, and Aussie Bush Camp, this group greatly appreciates your support.
The Tea Gardens Hawk’s Nest crew of three and a support crew will be joined by a five-man crew from Sydney, including Australia representative crew and 2021 Australian Open surfboard champions South Curl Curl, who will join the crew on Saturday morning. We left Mango Blush. Anzac Park to Myall River in three different distance events.
A fantastic joint event for the local community culminated Saturday at Anzac Park with prizes for paddlers and the official boat launch of the ‘Mullett 1’ surfboat, kindly donated to Mallett by the Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club. Done.
Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club President and Surf Boat Captain Paul Quick and his wife Lynn were in attendance at the event to christen the boat and announce the name that will be used for all surf boat activities.
Jimmy’s Beach Aquatic Club’s first surf boat, Mullet 1, was named ‘The John Estens’ and ‘The Steve SCUBA Howell’. Both are great supporters of the local Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Community and have contributed a lot of hard work and effort to get them together. Water features at Jimmy’s Beach Aquatic Club.
To continue the weekend, the crew returned to Anzac Park on Sunday morning to complete the 12-kilometer return course to Pindimar, which was slightly windier and more testing conditions than Saturday at Myall.
They were hosted at the Tipping Point by the Pindimar Recreation Club and its president Peter Larkin and his wife Michele.
Myall Coast Community Radio was also in Anzac Park on Saturday with traveling reporter ‘Mungo Jack’.
A great community event returning to the Myall calendar for both paddlers and surfboats in September 2023.
