In Tokyo today Rowing ACT umpire Catherine Garrington qualified for her international rowing (FISA) umpires licence.


Catherine is one of Rowing ACT’s long-standing regatta officials. She is known to many local rowers as “the voice of the 1000m start”.


The rigorous exam was completed over two days, with a day of theory tests on the first followed by a series of practical scenarios on the second.


Catherine’s achievement is the culmination of almost two years of preparation. In late 2016 Rowing Australia nominated Catherine for the Australian Sports Commission’s National Officiating Scholarship program. This gave her access to international-level officiating education, mentoring and experience in working with regatta juries at major events. 


Catherine’s FISA licence qualifies her to officiate at international events, all the way up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Are you interested in becoming one of our Boat Race Officials? 

Boat Race Officials (BROs) are a vital part of Rowing ACT who volunteer their time to ensure that every regatta is fun, safe and run to a high standard.

There are a variety of roles for BRO’s, some of which requiring a boat licence. 

The training session will be held 21 October, 1:30 – 3:30pm at the Elizabeth McKay Aquatic Centre, Yarralumla Bay (the old CGGS boat shed).
