LRC Regatta – 10 March, call for volunteers

LRC is hosting a grade regatta on Sunday 10 March. We need volunteers for various tasks. Please write to Tim @ with your availability.


Please use lights on boats now that it’s rather dark in the morning. The shop has a good supply of them.

Tinny stacking

If you have used a stacked tinny, please restack it at the end of the session. Don’t just use an empty trolley as some of the tinnies are too heavy to be stacked, so we need to maintain their order.

LRC White Polo Shirts

Some of you may have noticed members wearing white LRC embroidered polo tops. They come in both men and women’s sizes (you can find out more about them in our shop –
As we don’t keep them in stock, we wait until we have sufficient orders and then send off for them. It takes about 2 weeks for the shirts to arrive.
If you are interested in ordering a top, can you please place an order via our shop by Friday, 1st March. If you have any questions please ask either Daniela or Tim Mason.


Support a social impact documentary

We are trying to raise much needed production funds for the documentary feature, The Oarsmen and finish the great rowing story about the Diggers who rowed into war at Gallipoli and rowed out the other side at the Royal Henley Peace Regatta with the King’s Cup. Any financial contribution toward this independent production would be appreciated and all donations are fully tax deductible made through the link to The Oarsmen at the Documentary Australia Foundation.

Croker Oars are building a set of handmade Canadian spruce toothpick oars of the era and Rowfit are constructing ‘poppet’ riggers to recreate the AIF boat in action on the water for the documentary. You can go to Facebook @The OarsmenAIF to follow the progress of the oars construction or click on the below.

The Oarsmen – Feature Documentary PLEASE SUPPORT THIS…

Posted by The Oarsmen on Saturday, 5 January 2019

We aim to work with veterans’ groups and involve ex-servicemen or women in telling the story through voice, editing and rowing. The Oarsmen a story about the ‘peace’ and about the survivors of war who went on to win the King’s Cup. You can watch a short trailer about The Oarsmen here:
