winter rowing

It’s been pretty cold in the last few days. Get ready for Winter and chew on some of those Vitamin C tablets

Welcome to our new members

We have a number of new members joining the club over the past few weeks, many of them from our recent learn to row program.
Welcome to the club and we hope you enjoy rowing with Leichhardt.

Approved Regatta Entries

All approved entries are published on the website and on the board at the bottom of the stairs.

Leichhardt hosts the Iron Cove Regatta 10 May

Most of the tasks for running the regatta have been allocated to crews, however if you wish to lend a hand, contact Vice Captain Belinda Brigham ( or Vice Captain Guy Elron (

Australian Masters Championships

Some of our best masters athletes are doing well at the Championships in Adelaide.

Follow the races and medal tally online.

So far we have had two wins in the MMD8+ a composite crew with Dan O’Callaghan and in the WMF4- also a composite crew with Angela Conry and Anne Parbury. Well done!

(Anne is in the final of the WMF1x this morning – good luck Anne!)

Private Boat Storage

Applications for Private Boat Storage for single sculls and multi seat boats is due soon. We already have more applicants than racks so get your application in now for the 2015 season. Application forms can be found in the Membership Subscription & Fees section on our website. Only approved boats can be stored at the Club.

Birkenhead Marina

Some of the new floating pontoons off Birkenhead Marina have large planks protruding from them. Last week under certain tidal conditions the planks were protruding out into the rowing course. They are very hard to see in the dark. Keep wide of the area and go slow.


Please think of others when parking between the lines. We have limited parking so when someone takes up 2 spaces as in the photo of some of our members, it is very annoying.
