The girls also joined a composite crew in the WMA quad scull coming third in the final. Candice competed in the WMA single scull rowing well to finish 5th in the final. Keryn and Mandy in the WME (50-59) double scull had a great row to win the silver medal in the final after finishing 2nd in their heat. David and Clare were very happy with their row the Mixed H (70-74) double finishing 2nd. Unlike other areas NSW do not give medals for the mixed races. In their respective singles Keryn (D) and Mandy (E) both finished 2nd in their heats and then in the finals both girls came 4th in their race. There was great excitement when David advanced to the final of the MMH single scull by coming 4th in his heat. He went on to finished 7th in the final.

In the quad scull races Keryn, Mandy, Joanne and Mandy Cavill (Mann) came 3rd in their heat of the WMD (50-54) race and finished 4th in the final. The WME (55-59) quad of Keryn, Mandy, Joanne and Clare fought hard to win their heat. The final was a very close race were they finished 7th with only 2 seconds between 3rd and 7th place. David and Roger Elliott (Iluka) had a good row in the MMH double coming home 4th. David also joined the Iluka crew in the Mix G-K quad also finishing 4th. Thank you very much to Keryn for all her coaching and help in achieving these results.
