1986 Men's Junior Four

1986 Men's Junior Four

The best performed crew was the junior pair from Canberra Grammar of Baird and McDonald-Crowley. The coxed four was affected by illness to Jason Kovacic which adversely affected their row in the semi final and final. Maree Spedding was a very young competitor and whilst very competitive domestically, was outclassed in this competition.
