This weekend sees the ACT facing its worst fire conditions
since 2003, with high temperatures, strong winds, poor air quality, and a
bushfire out of control in the Namadgi National Park. Given this combination,
Rowing ACT has decided to cancel this weekend’s CGS Regatta. This is to make
sure that athletes, coaches, volunteers, staff, spectators and families are not
put under duress, and that everyone has the opportunity to prepare themselves
and their properties for all eventualities.
Rowing ACT will now work towards holding a replacement regatta on Yarramundi Reach on Saturday February 22.
We hope that everyone stays safe during this time.
