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

The winner of the Rusty Robertson Youth Cup for the most points at the 2005 Australian Youth Cup was decided during the last race of the regatta with the New Zealand North Island charging home to take Gold in the Women's Eight and in doing so securing enough points to claim the overall regatta. Tasmania was the best of the Australian teams taking third place behind New Zealand South Island and in front of Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory.

The regatta, which was held at West Lakes in Adelaide, started in near perfect conditions on Friday 2 September. Racing in the small boat finals saw all teams sharing the medals, while a consistent overall performance put New Zealand South Island in a commanding lead in the overall points standing at the end of Day 1.

The excitement of the second day came in the Men's Coxless Four. Although Western Australia won convincingly, a fast finishing South Australian crew charged down the New Zealand North Island crew only to dead heat for the silver medal.

The final day started with Tasmania holding a narrow lead in the overall points score with five teams in contention for the Rusty Robertson Youth Cup, however, they struggled in both eights making it a tough ask to take out overall points. New Zealand South Island's Bronze medal in the Men's Eight, behind Western Australia and New South Wales, put them in the lead going into the final race, with three other teams within three points of the leader. New Zealand South Island's fourth place finish behind New Zealand North Island, Victoria and Queensland in the Women's Eight wasn't enough and allowed New Zealand North to claim the gold medal and the Rusty Robertson Youth Cup.

The regatta highlighted the strength of junior rowing in both Australia and New Zealand. With every team winning multiple medals, including six separate medallists in the two eight's races and the close battle for the Rusty Robertson Youth Cup, the standard of competition continues to improve each year. Congratulations to Barbara Fenner and all of the staff at the South Australian Rowing Association for hosting another successful
