    A croc-infested, muddy river in central Queensland has been hailed as "gold" 

    as a training ground for Australia's elite rowers.

    The Australian team has been in a training camp at Rockhampton, honing their speed on the mighty Fitzroy River ahead of the World Rowing Championships in Bulgaria next month.

    Hi All,

    WBRC has launched a program targeted and linking the home grown talent leaving the school system and looking for a way to enter the State and National systems.

    To this end we have met with the Rowing Heads to launch the program and gain their valuable input into the program.

    We are lucky enough to have Paul Blanchfield to head the program and provide guidance in the outcomes.

    We have also invested in $52,000 of new racing boats to facilitate the success of the program.

    Hi All,

    Over the last month we have had 4 working bees to update the committee room. The committee room, "King's Room" named after George King that donated a substantial sum of money, has been in need of some work for some time. Painting is now complete and the pictures have been cleaned are ready for re-hanging.

    We plan to replace the carpet shortly and reopen the Kings Room to all once again.

    If you have some thoughts on how to better use this space please let us know.

    Good afternoon winter rowers and coaches, 

    I hope you've all been enjoying the program so far. 

    Please see attached updated schedule - the only changes are Monday mornings are now incorporated into the other sessions, and we are running an optional ergo session Monday nights at 6pm at the shed. All welcome. I've spoken with a few of you with some great feedback on the program so far, and look forward to meeting more of you around the shed. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, feedback or changes to your program you'd like to make. I'll be overseas from Friday 11 May to Friday 18 May, so I'll be on emails only, otherwise please contact your coach directly during that period.

    If you're keen to race over winter please let your coaches know. We are welcoming new members for next season of summer racing too - we are always looking for more rowers, coxes, coaches and volunteers to join us during the season. We had some great results last season ranging from new rowers racing at country regattas for the first time, to gold medals at the state championships!

    For anyone considering rowing at an elite level when you finish school, we will be running a pathway program for state selection. Stay tuned for updates and some exciting announcements.See you around the shed!

    Alicia Ivory

    Captain WBRC
