Open Day and Row-In– Saturday 5 August 2017 – From 8am

Capital Lakes Rowing Club would like to invite other ACT Clubs to row on down and visit us in our new Boathouse and join us for a sausage sizzle and coffee. We now have our dock in place and would like to offer the opportunity to share our new facility with the rest of the ACT rowing community. Make this visit a part of your morning row or drop by and visit us after rowing – we have plenty of parking for boats and wheeled vehicles.


The Capital Lakes Rowing Club Boathouse can be found at 23 Menindee Street Barton in Grevillea Park

Through 3 Winter Time Trials there isn’t much separating the pointscore leaders in each boat class.

The Kwiatkowski Cup Men’s 1x is led by Shellharbour rower Hayden Vanderwoude with a 4 point advantage over BMRC’s Rob Curtin. Alan Carey (CGS Old Boys) and Nicholas Barnier (CRC) round out the top 4 just 5 and 7 points back from Vanderwoude. 2016 Kwiatkowski Cup Winner Tom Perry (CRC) isn’t far off the pace in 5th.

Sarah Larkin (ANU) is enjoying a 13 point buffer between her and next-best Alexandra Moylan (CRC) in the race for the Women’s 1x Circulis Plate. Philippa Henty (CRC), Alice Hatcher (ANU), Neve James (CGGS) and Jilly Roberts (ANU) are all well placed to make a late push for the Plate. Course record holder Adair Ferguson (CRC) sits 7th.

The BMRC/CRC ‘squad’ of Damien Pentony, Ian Mongan and Seb Lang are proving that consistency is key as they lead the Men’s 2- pointscore with twice the points of their nearest competitor.

It’s anyone’s race for the Women’s Pair with only 2 points separating the 5 crews entered so far. Two CRC crews lead the pointscore – Janice Jago & Felecity Antill, and Camille Chaerbuin, Kerry Knowleer & Elaine Bissaker.

The Open 2x is led by Nerida Carter and Darrell Ninham (CRC) from Sue Donoghoe and Ian Cooper (ANU). Glebe Double Anna Hueneke and Kenneth Major sit 3rd after racing in all WTTs so far.

A two-horse race is starting to emerge in the Women’s Doubles, CRC crew of Kerrie Smyth and Emma Southcott are tied for the lead with BMRC/LTRC crew Cecilie Young and Christine Young.

Open Quads are led by CLRC crew of Perkins, Kalkman, Nichols, Yamamoto, Payten and Miller, with a 5 point lead over second.

With low entries keeping the pointscore close the Open & Womens Fours and Eights are far from over.

WTT 4 is on 19/20 August, and WTT 5 on 16/17 September.

Points are allocated by awarding 1 point for every boat beaten on the handicap adjusted results. Crews may change up to 50% of their rowers before they are considered a different entry e.g. a quad can have up to 6 different rowers over the course of the WTT series and still accumulate points as the same crew.


Rowing Australia (RA) and its member State/Territory Associations have developed standardised terms and conditions to ensure that there is a clear understanding of the conditions that apply to the membership of each individual across the country.

Previously, each club and state association had used its own separate terms and conditions, which could sometimes lead to confusion regarding the terms of an individual’s membership, including the application of national benefits such as insurance and other national programs.

The standardised terms and conditions ensure that there is clarity regarding the terms of an individual’s membership, which protects both the members, clubs and associations that are providing services to those members. This approach has a range of benefits for the individuals that participate in our sport, including ensuring that each member is protected under national policies such as the Member Protection Policy and that each member’s information is stored and handled in line with Privacy Policies.

The terms and conditions have been developed using best practice examples from across the sports and recreation industry, which have then been tailored to ensure that they accurately reflect the specific environment within rowing. The standardised terms and conditions include the following elements:

  • A disclosure and acceptance of risks, including those risks associated with participating in rowing;
  • A consent to receive medical treatment in the event that the member requires treatment;
  • A statement regarding insurance and how that is provided to the member;
  • The provision of indemnity by the member;
  • Acceptance to be bound by all relevant policies, including the Member Protection Policy;
  • Consent for the use of an individual’s image for the promotion and growth of the sport; and
  • A statement regarding privacy, including the protection of a member’s information through the respective Privacy Policies.

The standardised terms and conditions will improve the administration of the sport by providing clarity regarding the conditions and protections that apply to the membership of each individual involved in rowing. These terms and conditions will also better assist members to understand their rights, obligations and protections when they participate in the sport.

Questions regarding the standardised terms and conditions should be directed to in the first instance, and to in the case of any detailed queries.
