Gold for MLC Reds – Division 3 Rowing–Ballarat Regatta

Em’s second Rowing Regatta was last Saturday on Lake Wendouree, Ballarat. The workload was upped as this was a full 2km course with more clubs in attendance and heavy cross winds causing all boats difficulties.  But despite all this the MLC Reds still took out Gold once again in Division 3.

The setting on Lake Wendouree was beautiful as we got to see them cross the finish line and then come back down, right in front of us, to get their boats out of the water.

I watch the finish of the Schoolgirls Division 3 to see MLC Red get Gold. Then later in afternoon for the U19’s Women I put on my running gear to take in the 5km run around the lake and watch them at start, half way into my run.

With the wind the start was chaos as many boats struggled to turn and line up being pushed by the wind.
