For the first time in a long time we sent a substantial amount of rowers from one school to this regatta, the public school's State Championships.
This year we had fourteen Penrith Highschool students attend the regatta. This in itself is quite an achievement given the program has only been running for one year. They had some good results, with highlights including:
WU15 1x: 6th: Gauri Kotera
Women's Inter Regional 4x+: 3rd: Gauri Kotera
MU15 1x: 3rd: Daming Wang
MU15 2x: 3rd: Daming Wang and Tanish Patil
MU16 1x: 8th: Alex Vella
A big thankyou to Penrith Highschool for their support of this program, without which we would not be where we are now. We look forward to the future of this program. Thanks to Sarah who has been pivotal to the success as a whole and in particular for this event.
Edee also attended the regatta, representing her school, Wollongong Highschool of the Performing Arts. Edee had a comfortable heat though her start was not ideal with a not so straight start causing her to crash into buoys. She had a smoother race in the final and went away with the silver.
