“Sydney University Boat Club named Champions of the Club Points Score
At the conclusion of the 2018 Aon Sydney International Rowing Regatta, a review of the Champion Club Points Score table was completed and it was noted that a calculation error had been made.
Rowing Australia wish to confirm that Sydney University Boat Club (SUBC) are in fact the winners of the 2018 Champion Club Points Score, and not Sydney Rowing Club, as was originally communicated. We sincerely apologise to the members of Sydney Rowing Club for the calculation error. We would like to heartily congratulate SUBC on being named the 2018 Champions of the Club Points Score and thank them for their understanding over the matter.
We are working with Sydney University Boat Club and Rowing New South Wales for a suitable opportunity to present SUBC with the Champion Club Points Trophy.”
