2014 World Rowing Masters Regatta at Ballarat

  • The recent regatta at Ballarat was not only the FISA Masters Regatta, but it was also a reunion for members of the 1956 Olympic rowing teams from Australian, Japan, Italy and Germany. Presentations were made to those attending and a row past of those present was conducted. Some of those who raced at Ballarat in 1956 liked it so much that they stayed.
