Photo here shows the SUBC carpark on Wednesday morning this week when over 32 vehicles were in residence as training for the Youth Cup, the Trans Tasman and the 2004 Junior and U23 crews reached peak time. SUBC has 8 of 9 male members of the NSW Youth Cup team heading to Adelaide to compete 9-11th July against other states and New Zealand in the Youth Cup. Ed Yorston , one of SUBC’s
“apprentice coaches” has been selected as men’s coach for this team.
At the same time SUBC will be fielding and VIII to compete against New Zealnd Universities in the annual Uni Trans Tasman in Sydney along with crews from the women’s club.
As well as this activity, Head Coach Marty Rabjohns is preparing the 2004 Ausssie Junior Coxed Four who will be heading off to the World Championships in Baynoles Spain mid July and Andrew Randell is coaching the Aussie U23 Coxed Four going to the U23 Worlds in Poznan, Poland.
And not forgotten is Nick Hudson, 2003 Gold Medallist in the U23 Quad, who is again selected in the Aussie U23 Quad and is training in this crew under coach John Bowes at Sydney Rowing Club. These championships will be held early August.
The parents of these crews have been busy fund-raising and the Junior Four lunch held at Darling Harbour on 20th June plus generous donations from supporters have enabled this crew to prepare for their event fully funded.
The U23 Four parents are holding a cocktail party this Saturday at 6.00 pm at Leichhardt Rowing Club to raise funds towards the U23 trip.
All SUBC active members and supporters are encouraged to attend.
The SUBC Committee congratulates our coaches, Marty Rabjohns (Head Coach), Andrew Randell (Heavyweight Coach ) and assistant coaches Ed Yorston and James Tyree on their work in supporting this vibrant rowing program.
The Committee also thanks the parents of the Junior Four and U23 reps who have been so active in fund-raising for their sons.
