The major dragon boat regatta commences later in the week and their brand new start platform is in place off the National Library.
I understand that the platform will be removed after the regatta is over.
The starting platform is 80 metres wide so that all crews travelling through Central Basin will see it.
I dont think it has lights on it, and it provides a major hazard for crews training in darkness, and for coxless crews that train without looking around much.
So have a look and admire the starting platform.
We will have it available for major rowing regattas on Yarramundi Reach

Those ACT based Masters rowers who are attending the Australian Masters rowing Championships at Lake Barrington in June, and who wish to be considered for inclusion in the ACT crews are asked to e-mail David Bagnall ( with details of your age this year, and whether you wish to be considered for the eight, or quad or either boat before 4 April 2011.

At the Nationals, the ROMS Review Committee provided an update on the process and direction of its review.

The Committee has received demonstrations from vendors and is currently matching the requirements of the rowing community with the available systems. It is expected that the Committee will recommend a product that will provide for on-line payment at the time of race entry and enable members of clubs to pay club fees, transport costs and other rowing-related payments on-line. The system will also make available to clubs generic website capability, saving the costs of hosting their own websites.

The system may be available to all regatta organisers, including for head and corporate regattas, and would provide the capacity for entry-fee collection as well as appropriate regatta management software.

The RA Board will make a final decision on the adoption of the ROMS review recommendation in May 2011.

A number of people commented that they had difficulty in navigating on our new website to some of the archival information, particularly past-year results. Accordingly, you may be interested in the Season Calendar which has a drop down box to select the year.
