Captain’s Log

Take time this weekend to …

Reflect on Anzac Day and to sit on the balcony with your rowing mates

National Masters Representatives

The Nationals are only 1 week away – 1st to 4th May, in Adelaide
Good luck to our members – Dianne Williams, Deanna Fekete, Anne Parbury, Angela Conry, Virginia van Ewyk, Caroline Vernon, Daniela Borgert, Nitya Varadarajan, Jen Zongor, Chloe Congdon and Dan O’Callaghan.

Good luck too to Austen Hunt

…who is trialling out for a much coveted position on the Australian team going to the Junior World Championships. The trials are being held at SIRC.

We’ve lost some oars

Two of the Rod Richardson Double Blades are missing. They may not have returned from SIRC after the Trickett.
If anyone knows what has happened to them, please email (and Austen, when you are out there, have a look around).

Iron Cove Masters Regatta – Saturday 10 May

We need helpers, especially from amongst those who are not competing (including the Juniors). LRC is responsible for the smooth operation of this event. This means everything form licensed tinny drivers to BBQ experts, cake bakers etc.
Please contact one of our Vice Captains if you can help –

  • Belinda Brigham – 0417 467 362
  • Guy Elron – 0418 110 917

Closing The Shed

Why is it that the roller door won’t go down properly? Perhaps if I just pull the chain harder it will be ok? Could it be that the hose is still connected and holding on for dear life??
The hoses have to be disconnected every time and left outside the roller doors. Who’d have thought????

Also, last in is responsible to make sure everything is away, shed is closed up properly and alarm is set to ON. If you don’t know what I am talking about then you probably shouldn’t be at the shed by yourself.


All boats, fins and holes have been fixed. Looking good……
