CREW NEWS - Updated FRIDAY, 17th MAY, 2013.
URUNGA REGATTA A great day was had by all. Congratulations to our first time regatta members: Lark Whittingham, Sue Oswald, Tania and Sara Wright, Jenny Clark and our three Juniors, Emily Beard, Maleasha Clarke and Jack Edmonds. Congratulations also to our Men's 10s crew who came 3rd in the Final. For all results go to http://www.dbnsw.org.au/regattas/race-results/race-results-.html and scroll down to Urunga. All those hours of training and technique work is really starting to show as commented on by "those in the know". Both the Women's and Mixed crews were very unlucky not to make the finals. Thanks to Sharon and June for their great drumming! There are some great photos on our Facebook page. See the link further down on this page. (Thanks Andrew & Sharon)
