2012 Albert Park Lake Masters Regatta

Saturday 14th April marked yet another very successful Regatta for Richmond Rowing Club. It was truly inspiring to see the club spirit in action. We had 28 plus rowers competing and numerous others on the bank enjoying the sunshine and cheering on the crews.
The competition as always was tough as each rower was pushed and responded by digging deep in true Tiger spirit. Congratulations to all the rowers each and every one of you put in 110% and all deserve to be winners with bling around your necks.
The day was filled with great results for the club with 5 placing’s in the Bronze and 3 in the Silver position, but a special mention goes to the following 3 crews who won their events and for many it was their first medal representing Richmond which was especially pleasing to see.
Mixed Masters Coxed Eight

I am sure every rower would like to thank their coaches and coxes for all their time and dedication plus a huge thank you also goes to those behind the scenes who make it all possible. You are the unsung heroes of our Club who quietly go about the business of keeping the Club moving and on track. Without your experience and dedication none of us are able to turn up and row.
Well done Richmond and thanks to all for a fantastic day….
“Just try out-rowing a tiger!”
