Captain’s Log

Trophy 1


Rowing NSW handed over the Premiership Shield on Wednesday night. I will bring it down to the shed this weekend. At the moment it is in my bed. Well done to everyone in the Club.

Trophy 2

Congratulations to Chloe Congdon on winning the Coxwain Of The Year award.
Leichhardt also won the Bohemia award for time trial races (Trophy has gone missing!!!).
The first Premiership Winner was Sydney in 1880. The Police Force won it in 1936. It is quite an historic piece. Recently we have won it 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011 and of course 2014.
Preparations are well underway for 2015!
