Trans Tasman Regattas– 2003 Youth Cup, West Lakes SA

The following report appeared on the Rowing Australia web site for this regatta:

Victoria has won the overall pointscore at this year's Australian Youth Cup which was held at the Westlakes Rowing Course in Adelaide from 17th to 19th October 2003. It was an excellent three day regatta for some of the best under 21 rowers from all Australian states and New Zealand which was split into North and South Island. The emphasis was on teams. Each team composed of 9 male and 9 female members and had to include at least 2 lightweights and a coxswain.

Victoria scored a total of 106 points to win the Rusty Robertson Trophy. In second place was Queensland with 89 who just tipped out New Zealand North Island on 87. With points being awarded for all positions, 9 for 1st, 8 for 2nd and so forth, it resulted in very intense and exciting racing in the 64 races contested.

The climax of the regatta saw all team members race in the eights. The women's eight was won by New Zealand South Island just on a length in front of Victoria with the host state South Australia 3rd and finishing just in front of New Zealand North Island.

In the men's eight New South Wales took the Gold with New Zealand North Island taking silver just 0.6 seconds in front of Queensland.

Sarah Forbes from Victoria won the women's single scull in a very good time of 8.02.26 just one third of a length in front of Emma Feathery from New Zealand South Island.

The men's single scull was won by David Houston of Queensland in an excellent time of 7.09.23, narrowly beating Josef Klaasen of New Zealand North Island by 1.67 seconds.

On the Saturday evening the rowers attended a bar-b-que which as well as being a social event, tafforded them the opportunity to question some of Australia's elite rowers on how they achieved success. Questions covered a range of topics including the amount of training, study, goal setting and technique.

All rowers thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, which was convened by long time rowing stalwart from South Australia, Barbara Fenner, who is also on the FISA Youth Commission.

With the high cost of travel to Europe, The Youth Cup is an important part of the program for the development of rowers in Australia and New Zealand.
