Mosman members to represent Australia in surf boat rowing

Congratulations to MRC members Jordan Thurlow and Trent Rogers who, as part of a South Curl Curl SLSC crew, have won selection as Australian representatives in next year’s Trans-Tasman Surf Boat Series which, of course, will be against New Zealand.  It’s an outstanding achievement for two family men with busy jobs to beat convincingly crews many years younger than they are.

Last weekend’s regattas

Here are the results from the Reindeer Regatta and the NSW Sprints Regatta.  Well done everyone!

I went to SIRC to watch some of the races on Saturday. There was a great feeling around the MRC trailers with many different age groups represented.  As well, Judith Ungemach had connected a coffee machine to a power point at the base of a nearby speaker pole.
