Rowing ACT has decided to cancel the proposed regatta that was to be held on Easter Saturday.

The Association has made this decision due to burnout of our Boat Race officials, and our potential difficulty in being able to have enough officials to manage the regatta.

We apologise to any competitors who had planned to compete. If you are locally based, we seek your assistance in swelling our numbers of Boat Race officials next season
