College rowers around the club and on the water in April

Training for the University of Melbourne intercollegiate regatta has commenced culminating with the regatta day on the May 4th.

It’s worth noting that whilst some crews are ex-school rowers with plenty of experience many have never rowed before and will be getting a crash course in sweep rowing before competing in that first regatta in less than a month.

This year RRC has leased 2 of our 8’s out to the college crews (the Shouten Family and the Jennifer Campbell). The crews are expected to be training regularly on weekday mornings and occasionally over the weekend or other times. However the 8’s will be available to us as part of our regular training sessions in the evenings (Tuesday and Thursday) and on Sunday morning.

With RRC and MLC leasing fleet to the intercollegiate rowing this year there will be a number of new faces around the club over the next month. That’s a lot of potential new members so make them feel welcome.

They have been reminded to use the log book but please check the boats are all on the racks before you lock the RRC shed up.
