2022 Masters National Championships

Big thanks to Chris & Leigh Sullivan for trailering, and S-V the indefatigable BRO.

It was great to see all-Richmond club crews rowing in WA8+, WC8+, WA4+, WB4+, WC4+, WB4x, WB4x, WC4x, WD2x, MC4x, MD4x, MixC4x,  MixF4x, WLWB1x.

Medals are awarded to the fastest single-club crew in each event: these fastest club gold medals went to Richmond in the A4+ (Dyball, Pearce, Doggett, Crouser, cox Joy) the B4+ (Dyball, Joy, Maxwell, Doggett) and the C4+ (Dyball, Joy, Goss, Doggett), a dominance in the sweep categories!- as well as the B4x (Dyball, Joy, Maxwell, Doggett) and B2x (Dyball Joy). 

Championship gold medals were won in the A4+, B4x and B2x, and in composite crews in the A8+, G8+, G4x, J-M 8+, J-M 4+ with gold medals in the MixC4x (Pearce, Golding), MixE4x (Pearce, Goss) and MixF4 (Goss).

It was great to see Richmond field two club eights, and for many it was a first experience at a Nationals regatta- well done to the WA and WC eights! (A.Amos, C.May, D.Hill, S.Hardy, S.Stewart, N.Finn, S.Mullner, E.Miles, K.Fergie, C.May, A.Lawler).

Well done to RRC mens and mixed crews and special mention to Dennis Beck for travelling to Ballarat to sub into the mens D4x – “An absolute honour to represent the club at nationals and help some crewmates out”, or “It gets me out of doing a time trial”
