Three ACT Scullers were today announced as members of Australian teams that will compete in Europe in July and August.

Tom Perry of Canberra Rowing Club is a member of the Men’s Lightweight quad who will compete at the World Rowing Championships in Aiguebelette, France. The crew will train in Melbourne prior to departure.

Cara Grzeskowiak of Capital Lakes Rowing Club is a member of the Women’s Quad Scull that has been selected to compete at the World Under 23 Championships to be held in July at Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Cara will be training at Mosman in Sydney prior to departure.

Luke Letcher of Black Mountain Rowing Club is a member of the Men’s Double Scull who will compete at the World Under 23 Championships in Plovdiv, and like Cara, Luke will train in Mosman before departure.

These results are reward for hard training across recent months and great coaching from ACTAS coach Andrew Randall, who has been appointed coach of the senior A Women’s eight to compete at the World Cup regattas.

Good luck to all these scullers and their coach in Europe.

BMRC is hosting an event to thank our Boat Race Officials for what that they do for our community. The ACT Rowing 2014-15 season was one of the biggest on record and without the tireless efforts of our BROs it would not have been possible.


Rowers, parents, partners, children – all are welcome!

Date and Time: Sat 2 May 2015 5.00 pm – 7.00 pm

Venue: Black Mountain Rowing Club

Cost: $10 pp (under 18 y.o. free) to include nibbles and your first drink. BROs attend for free.


There has been an increase in boat incidents/accidents on the lake over the last few weeks.  Please ensure that the Watercraft Safety on Lake Burley Griffin Traffic Flow Guide is followed, including all boats being lit in the dark with white light visible from 360o. Remember that overtaking vessels have a legal obligation to keep clear and give way to boats on your starboard (bow) side.

The Rowing Australia On Water Safety Guidelines are useful resources outlining safe use of waterways for rowers.

If there is an incident (collision, near miss and winter capsize – between 1 June and 30 September) a Rowing ACT Incident Report Form should be completed and submitted ASAP to with a copy being kept in the club.

Keep safe – and shout loudly if a rower is on collision course in your direction, they maybe unaware that you have stopped or are even there!
