The Championships sees competitors of all abilities race over both the 1000m and 2000m distances on the course that was home to rowing at the 2000 Olympic Games.
Racing is conducted across eights, coxless and coxed fours, quad sculls as well as pairs, double sculls and single sculls. Outstanding results came from the combination of Kate Brumersky and Peta Rak in the Women’s C Grade Double Sculls who were placed 1st and Peta Rak was placed 3rd in the Women’s C Grade Single Sculls.
In the Women’s C Grade Single Sculls, Katrina Davis, a multiple Australian Masters medallist, was placed 1st in a very competitive event, in a time of 3:59.04.
Our more experienced club members, Anthony Weaver, Dean Watts (an Australian representative), Chris Turner and Dwain Boon performed convincingly in the Men’s D Grade Quad Sculls. Mary Ambrose and Linda Eddington in the Women’s D Grade Double Sculls rowed particularly well in an event that attracted a large number of entries. Harry Davis and Chris Turner enjoyed a leisurely row in the Men’s C Grade Pair.
Our newer club member, Olesia Marles, Amber Parry, Samantha Neilson and Charli Billings combined in the Women’s D Quad Sculls and Double Sculls. Nathan Golding and Matthew Billings in the Men’s D Double Sculls enjoyed the racing over the weekend.
David Eddington and Andrew Parry, Shoalhaven Rowing Club coaches, also handled the competition well competing in the Men’s D Grade Quad Sculls.
