The second annual Head of the Molonglo was held for this morning in perfect conditions on Lake Burley Griffin.
Fourteen crews participated (the same number as the initial Head of the Yarra!). The wind picked up after the last crew finished and we had superb conditions for the race.
The association is aware that north side clubs were inconvenienced by road closures for the Iron man triathlon. These road closures were listed on the NCA website but the local ramifications were not apparent to RACT. So excellent perseverance of the various northside rowers to surmount this hurdle to get to the start line.
Great work for all crews.
I would like to thank all our volunteer traffic marshals.
We managed this event with a great effort from club volunteers, while our Exec Officer was in Canberra Hospital.
I commend those volunteer traffic marshals, Marist parents for providing the barbecue and Michael Cusack for his help at the start and finish.
I visited James Hammond at Canberra Hospital and he was operated on this morning (during the race) and he is recovering from his appendectomy.
I informed him that the event had run perfectly.
