Merry Christmas Everyone
KR1 Wrap up
It was fantastic to get up to KR1 and see our rowers in action and so many performing well! We had more finals than I can remember Onslow being in at this regatta and some notable performances. Especially pleased to see the U15 8 take third in that event – Onslow has not had an eight in the last couple of seasons – so to have two competing was awesome! Once again, the senior girls performed well and our senior boys 4 and Quad won their intermediate men’s events and placed third in the Double – a great start to the season for them. For a full round-up of results see the website: https://ocrowingclub.weebly.com/2017-18-regatta-results.html
Once again, we had a great team of parent helpers and our coaches worked tirelessly to support the rowers – a huge thanks for this!
Just a few reminders about summer camp which is from Saturday 6th to Thursday 11 January:
Fees for this are due by 30 December into the Onslow rowing account please, with rower name as reference.
Thanks to Melanie Dingle for stepping up and volunteering to coordinate grants applications - once school re-opens we will be progressing these.
Ex-Onslow Rower Drops in
Ex-Onslow rower and former Olympian, Jamie Hunter dropped into the Senior boys training last week to say hi. Jamie rowed lightweight for NZ and then transformed into the pair where he rowed with Tom Murray last season before recently announcing his retirement. It was great for the boys to have an opportunity to meet him and he generously dropped off a pile of rowing gear – including some NZ representative unitards, that the boys have already been seen sporting out on the harbour 😊 Thanks to Tufi for lining this up!
Looking forward to getting to know everyone at Summer Camp
