Canberra Girls Grammar School is selling three of its boats – two coxed quads and one double scull. These boats are S&B built fibreglass & timber construction and make great learn-to-row boats. They are still being regularly used in the CGGS learn-to-row program, but have now become excess to needs. They are cheap yet solid boats that would suit junior school students up to novice masters. Please contact Dafydd Gwynn-Jones at Canberra Girls Grammar School by or phone (02) 62026456.

A boat clash has required an adjustment to the draw.Division 1 of the MGB 2x event will move to 11:50. This means some races will start 5 minutes later than the previously advertised time. Timeliness for Event Starts – Bow Numbers Can all competitors please ensure they arrive at the start marshalling area at least 10 minutes before the advertised starting time of each event. Our boat race officials attempt to be lenient with late arrivals, but it is getting out of hand and making running the regattas difficult. You can expect to be disqualified more readily in the future. Also causing difficulties for our voluntary officials is the use of non-standard boat numbers, or no number at all. Please ensure you use a regulation colour and size number. These can be hired from the finish judging tent.
