Racing started on Saturday morning in windy and choppy conditions with Brad Pearsall competing in a preliminary final for the School Boys single scull which he won easily. That afternoon the same field of rowers were meant to take to the course to row the final, but Brad was the only one who braved the conditions so won just by rowing over the course.
Sunday saw club rowing and Brad started the day rowing in his Under 19 single scull first and final which he won convincingly over his competitors. He then teamed up with Fergus Hamilton to compete in the U19 double scull which they won by over 200metres – great effort from Fergus who not only is only 15 years old but was his first time racing over 2000 metres.
President Robert “Dinga” Eyers was the last competitor of the weekend and competed in the Master single scull. Dinga had to give a head start of 29 seconds to 2 other competitors who were older than him but he still managed to beat them as well as another competitor in the same age bracket.
