Em’s first big Rowing Regatta was yesterday where she went head to head with other rowers for the first time at the Barwon Regatta in Geelong. She represented MLC Red (Division 3) Team in Number 6 Seat, Stroke Side.
They took out the medal for Female School Eight Open Division 3. The video is them in action in Heat One…
…and then later receiving their medals.
The final they won by a clear boat length as you can see by the below photo where second place (blue boat) is just on the edge of the picture.
It was a beautiful day, sunny but not too hot, as we all enjoyed relaxing on the bank and watching the races. Em had a full fan base with her Jido (grandfather), Aunty and two Cousins plus Kerrie and myself.
