2009 Australian Masters Championships, Fitzroy River, Rockhampton QLD
After four days of tough competition, Queensland’s Toowong Rowing Club toped the medal tally with a staggering 19 gold medals, 22 silver medals and 17 bronze medals. The clubs strong performance was a result of a great team contribution with the medals being shared amongst most of the Toowong members.
Other successful clubs include Victoria’s Powerhouse Rowing Club (12 gold, 8 silver, 3 bronze), Melbourne Rowing Club (10 gold, 10 silver, 3 bronze) and Corio Bay Rowing Club (9 gold, 2 silver, 3 broonze) and Queensland’s Commercial Rowing Club(11 gold, 8 silver, 6 bronze).
The weather was excellent until day 4 when blustery conditions took over.
The regatta’s success is in no small part due to the support received by the Rockhampton Region Council.
