Preparations for Victorian State Championships

This weekend the sprint season hits its pinnacle with the Rowing Victoria State Championships, taking place at Nagambie. Richmond will be competing on Sunday 1st March in mens and womens sweep and sculling events and we wish everyone taking part good luck and a great day of racing.
For those attending Boat loading will be this Friday at 6pm.
Don’t forget to check ROMS for the up to date schedule, event times and to check out your competition.
A quick congratulations to everyone who took part in last Saturdays Australian Henley regatta too. With both male and female crews winning heats or qualifying in time trials to progress in a fiercely competitive event with total seats up from 740 last year to 1109 this year. Geraldine Goss was a final winner in a composite female masters coxed quad scull.
The sun and humidity definitely had a lot of us keen to make use of our new air conditioned clubhouse and refreshing bar after racing and a big thanks to Cat Hardie and her team on the bar and bbq who organised the afternoon activities. Also thanks to Justin Thomas who once again took on RRC’s BRO duties and stood through scorching sunshine and torrential rain – only in Melbourne.
Until next week…..
