Plundering Aussie Gold

An enthusiastic group of 31 kiwis traveled the Sydney International Regatta Course to compete in the Aussie champs from June 1-4th, 2023.

Representatives from Nelson, Horowhenua, Union Whanganui, Hawkes Bay, Clifton, North Shore and Tauranga clubs came home with some serious silverware!

A total of

  • 14 Gold
  • 6 Silver
  • 5 Bronze

Plus Maud O’Connell (Nelson RC) was invited to take part in the womens Winner-of-Winners singles event. This is open to all 1x gold medalists who join a handicapped race against all age groups.

North Shore was 31st in the overall medal table even though they got confused with North Shore (Sydney) a few times. We managed to tie the commentary team up in knots as they struggled with pronunciation!
