2023 National Championships — Champion Lakes, Perth

This page is under construction

The 2023 regatta was back in Perth for the first time since 2012 at the Champion Lakes course. 

The weather for a lot of the regatta was not kind with a strong cross breeze making conditions unfair. Following the heats, lanes were seeded with the highest ranked crews gaining the best lanes. There were some wider margins in racing than normally seen as a result. The weather on the final day was superb.

Photography for the last four days of the regatta can be found on the Australian Rowing Images website.

Sydney University Boat Club won the overall medal tally as most successful club at the 2023 Australian National Championships.

New South Wales won the overall point score to win the Rowing Australia Cup.
