SUBC claiming 2019 Gold Cup

Sydney Uni grabbed lane 1 with the fastest heat time leaving Sydney in lane 3.

Sydney had a lead on the staggered start but once the flag dropped they went away quickly increasing their lead to a length in the first few hundred meters. The university boat worked back into the race in the middle 800 metres and as they turned at the leaning pile looked to be University in front.

With 200 meters to go the commentator called the lead to Sydney Rowing Club but soon after SUBC had the break of about a canvas. The Sydney crew came back strongly in the last ten strokes – just failing – by 0.45 secs to catch the Blue and Gold.

This was our club’s second win in succession with the 2018 crew winning in a controversial re-row. The university men’s eight have now won 12 Gold Cups since 2000.

The crew was:

Marcus Britt, Devlin Walsh, Tom Anderson, Kieran Riach, Jordan Duff, Morgan Brooking,

Lachlan Miles Will O’Shannessy. Cox Dani Pettit
