Rowers off and racing for another season

The Lower Clarence Rowing Club will be hosting their annual regatta this Sunday 13th September on the South Arm of the Clarence River. Races start at 8.30am and finish about 2.30pm with food and coffee available to buy. Spectators are very welcome to come and watch our up and coming rowers from the Northern Rivers region who all should be inspired by the tremendous results recently of Leah Saunders (LCRC) when she won a silver medal at the U23 World Championships. It shows the younger rowers what dedication and hard work can achieve. Many of the rowers already compete successfully at State and National level. Some are also part of the North Coast Academy of Sport for Rowing. The Master rowers who are very competitive will also be on the water having fun. Look forward to seeing you there, just bring a seat and enjoy sitting on the river bank watching the rowing. You will find us on South Arm Road, 1km from Macfarlane bridge. A new Learn to Row course at the Lower Clarence Rowing Club at Maclean (near Ferry Park) will be commencing on the 3rd October 2015. The course will be conducted over 8 Saturday morning sessions, each session will be approximately 1 ½ hours and begin at 0800. The objective of the program is to teach basic rowing skills and boat handling techniques and develop potential rowers from beginner stage to have sufficient rowing skills to join a Lower Clarence rowing squad. Rowing squad training is conducted under the supervision of qualified coaches during the week; squad members are eligible to compete in Regattas when they reach an acceptable standard of rowing proficiency. Course numbers will be limited to six, the cost of the program will be $50, $15 of which covers the cost of a recreational rowing membership for Rowing NSW. If the rower then proceeds to join Lower Clarence as a member the $50 will be discounted from the LRRC membership fee. Please contact David Hailes (6646 3769) or Clare Millist (0405 634 316) to register your interest for the Learn to Row program. The minimum age is 12. Clare Millist
