Captain’s Log

State Masters Championships

What a weekend! We finished with 9 firsts, 12 seconds and 5 thirds. That added up to roughly 200 points.
Well done to all competitors especially the winners.
A full list of the results is on our notice board and on the NSW Rowing website.

Club Point Score

It looks like St George have won this year’s competition. We came a creditable 2nd.
I have learnt a few tricks to get us back on top next season.
We did however win the Bohemia distance trophy again.

Just when things looked they were on the way up!

This morning I arrived to find the following at the shed:

  1. Petrol tank on pontoon
  2. Hose caught under roller door
  3. LRC tinnies in the Pymble Bay
  4. LRC tinnies on trolleys walked far too far into the shed up against our boats
  5. Boats on racks the wrong way around

Where have I gone wrong?……………….

Black Boats

If you don’t know whether you are able to use a BLACK DOT boat then you are obviously not.

Read the Boat Usage Policy on our website if unsure.

These boats are kept for racing and our competitive crews as they lead up to their events.
