Captain Steve Duff calls for all rowers to submit an application for Black Boat Status for the new season should they wish to use these boats. Allocations will be done on rower status. Conditions for Black Boat Status approval are set out in the rules of the club.

World Masters Games, Turin

Congratulations to all the Leichhardt rowers who competed at the World Masters Games Championships in Turin. Most of our rowers made the finals in a number of events and many won medals. Well done to all and welcome home. We hope you had a great time and look forward to hearing all about your experiences of racing in Italy.
