YOUR STORY: Wide Bay Scullers compete in Mackay
For the first time in many years, rowers from the Wide Bay Rowing Club have competed in a Rowing Queensland regatta.
Only two athletes journeyed north to compete against rowers from Mackay, Townsville and Cairns on May 1.
The Mackay club generously supplied some top quality racing sculls for the four events which the Fraser Coast rowers were entered.
These included single scull, mixed double and composite crews with Mackay in men's double and quad.
In close to perfect conditions, wins were recorded in three events by Wide Bay Rowing Club rowers, admittedly against small fields.
It was a most enjoyable regatta and our local athletes look forward to attending the event again.
The next major regatta those in the Wide Bay are considering attending is the Australian Masters to be held at Kawana on the Sunshine Coast in early June.
This will probably be in composite crews with the Mackay club.
