The Disher Cup Regatta will be held tomorrow between 8:00 AM and 9:30 AM. The course runs from Kingston Foreshore to Regatta Point.

Crews will be taking the shortest course possible. Rowers and coaches not involved in this regatta are asked that they show respect to competitors by keeping clear of the course for the event duration.

Thank you in advance for supporting this event.

CGGS will be conducting a selection time trial over the winter time trial course on Wednesday morning, 19 October, with first boat starting at 7:00am; there will be approximately 20 small boats in the trial. There will be a CGGS marshal/safety boat stationed around the 1800m start line, Weston Park pontoons and the ‘big bend’.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and ask for wash to be kept at a minimum for this short period.

There will also be 3 – 4 selection races held on the course on Friday 21 October. We will work around all other course users as best we can, but ask for consideration to be given to those racing.

The water police carried out coach boat checks this morning in and around Yarralumla Bay. A number of coaches were found to not be carrying their licenses with them.

Reminder – Licenses: Powerboat drivers must carry their boat license with them at all times whilst operating the vessel.

Reminder – Safety Equipment: All powerboats must carry the prescribed minimum safety equipment (paddles, bailing bucket, anchor/rope/chain, torch, sufficient PFD’s and extinguisher. It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that the equipment is both present and in a serviceable condition.

Safety boats must carry sufficient approved PFD’s for the crew on board the safety boat. For rowing coaches, best practice suggests a safety boat should carry additional flotation to assist occupants of the coached vessel as well.

You’re Invited …

Capital Lakes Rowing Club invite all ACT Rowers and their families to attend a Rowing Stretching Workshop conducted by accredited Posture and Flexibility Teachers, Karen Caldwell and Markus Zellner.

Stretching is traditionally an undervalued component of sports training. Understanding the principles of stretching means that a small amount of weekly stretching will improve your posture, allowing you to row more efficiently and lengthen your rowing career.   All money raised is being donated to Capital Lakes Rowing Club to assist with the construction of the new clubhouse at Grevillea Park.
