Glynn Dromey 2014 results

Sign-ons start at 6:10am and I wanted to be there to promote the Mackerel1000. The 7 day waiting period for entrants would be waived for today’s Glynn Dromey Memorial Spearfishing comp and I expected a few to register. I woke 5 minutes before the alarm at 3:00am. An hour to load the car and boat with prizes, spearing and boat gear and, weigh-in equipment such as laptop, digital scales and fish bags for the contestants. I relaxed over a cup of tea, then into the car for the two hour to drive to Lancelin.

Today would be an event which for the contestants is 12 hours long but for the organizers is an expression of 12 months work.… Read more

WAUC Rottnest Island Crayfish competition 2013

WAUC Crayfish Competition for 2013

The Allure of the Azure, otherwise known as a day in Thompsons Bay, was held by the WAUC for the weigh-in of the crayfish competition for 2013. Conditions were as forecast with a freshish nor-easter early dropping to below ten knots by 10 on a swell of 1.25.

The crayfish season for the recreational fishers was extended a month and opened on October 15. It was a surprise announcement by the government but seemed to coincide with an improvement in the weather. The previous 2 months were crap. It also meant we had to consider earlier dates for holding the Club’s annual crayfish competition.… Read more

Western Australian Undersea Club presents

The Glynn Dromey Memorial Spearfishing Competition for 2013

We rocked up at the sign-in in the half light at twenty past six in the morning to see Jonty handing out forms and collecting money while Nathan was dispensing fresh baked Danish pastries to all. Not your average spearfishing comp.

The Glynn Dromey Memorial Spearfishing Competition has been held annually since 1996 in remembrance of Glynn Dromey who was tragically taken by cancer in the early eighties. Glynn was a WAUC member, was a very good spearo who was enthusiastic and adventurous. Entrants take the day off, organize leave passes, coordinate work schedules, catch buses from Albany, drive up from Bunbury and navigate the difficult journey from the Bluewater Club to attend the premier W.A.… Read more
