Crews take off from Corrigans Beach this Sunday.
Crews are in the final days of training for the 2019/2020 George Bass Surfboat Marathon, which starts at Corrigans Beach, this Sunday the 29th December.
Crews from around the country will join locals, including Melissa Meaker a solo paddler from Tathra, and masters men's and women's teams, participating in the 44th surfboat marathon.
It's a long haul from Batemans Bay to Eden, over seven days, covering 190km of rugged coastline, and this year smoky conditions and poor visibility may contribute to the difficulty.
