River Run Surf Boat Marathon - Results
Our 2 crews obtained great results in the River Run Boat Marathon (12 kms along the Georges River Sydney) last weekend.
The A crew (Paul Jones-Heath Mercer- Dean Roberts-Ben Lowe-Adam Barlow) finished a close 2nd to the North Cronulla crew. The boys were pretty happy with how they went as they have only been in the boat on 3 occasions since training started...but there has been a heap of work in the gym and on the erg rowing machines. The North Cronulla crew is said to be made up of stillwater rowers so the result was very promising.
The B Crew (Barry Lowe-Paul Barlow-Sam Barlow-Mitchell Roberts-Matt Bowen) won the Reserve section of the marathon and on completed times actually finished 3rd in the A section. Not a bad effort for guys who hadn't been in the boat together at all this season.
This season looks to be a big year for our Boat Section in numbers as it looks as though there will be a possiblity of 10 crews (record numbers) rowing in the maroon & gold colours;
Men's - A crew & 2 Reserve crews, 2 x U23 crews, 1 x U19 crew & 1 Vets crew
Ladies - A crew & 2 x U23 crews
Crew selections to be still sorted but a heap of members putting their hand up to gain selection in the above crews.
