The winning NSW IS eight in 1911

Former LRC junior athletes shine at the Open Championships

LUOR and LRC congratulate Leichhardt coaches Tim Tindale and Sue Philpot who share in the success of young Lauren Lyon and Freddie Gibbes at the recent Australian Championships at SIRC.

Lauren has just transferred to Sydney Rowing club, consistent with the NSW Institute of Sport talented athlete pathway, after several seasons with Leichhardt. Freddie has gone to Mosman and she’s enjoying a pretty good end of season there.

The Australian Rowing Championships attracted elite fields from across Australia, with the finals completed last Sunday.

Lauren was

  • Bronze in the U19W4x
  • Bronze in the U19W4-
  • 7th in the U19W1x
  • 4th in the U19W2x
  • 4th in the ISYW8+ (Interstate Youth Eight)

Freddie was

  • Bronze in the U21W1x
  • Bronze in the U21W2x
  • Bronze in the U21W4x

In addition, a composite 4x with two LRC members (Christine and AnnaC) won their WM4x Sprint race with the fastest time of all quads in the field, including Open, University and Schoolgirls’ crews.

Regatta entries

Please note that all entries must be sent to so Christine has a record of requests.

Masters Nationals

If you intend to go to Nationals at Nagambie (18-21 May), please let Christine or AnnaC know. We are planning a dinner before we go to organise logistics. Please note that the Club will not pay entry fees, and trailering costs will also need to be covered by those participating.

Point Score

We are currently on top of the ladder, but we have a couple of events (Trickett and State Masters) which will count for triple points, so we need our best crews together to win the Premiership. Good luck to all those competing in the next 2 days at SIRC. Bring home the bling (and the points)!

Iron Cove Masters

Early call for volunteers for this regatta hosted by LRC on Sunday 30 April.

Tinny drivers wanted!
Pontoon marshalls and catering help also needed.

Please contact AnnaC to lend a hand.
