The women’s masters squad returned from the Australian Masters Rowing Championships at Lake Barrington in Tasmania last weekend well laden with medals. The five rowers plus our cox got through to 13 finals over the four days of competition, winning 5 1sts, 1 2nd and 3 3rds.
Central Tasmania offered most of its weather options during the event – cool temperatures, showers, winds so strong that boats could not be held at the start pontoons, heavily frosted launch pontoons, and …. crisp clear calm sunny days.
Back in Sydney, the squad is now preparing for NSW Masters Championships at SIRC on 26-27 May, and beyond, with various squad members also training for Henley Masters at Henley-on-Thames in July and the Head of the Charles in Boston in November.
