Iron Cove Masters

Please send your entries to

During the lunch break at this regatta, we will be christening our two new Eights, the Margot Simington and the Sam Mackenzie.

Members are requested to attend of this brief but important ceremony which will honour the career of one of LRC’s great rowers, Sam Mackenzie, and also the memory of Margot Simington who was much loved by the club and left us the generous bequest which helped us buy “The Margot”.

A number of Sam and Margot’s families will be in attendance.

Call for Volunteers
