South West Regatta

South West Regatta

Organise your sporting mates, work colleagues and friends for a fun, challenging day on the beautiful Hopkins River in Warrnambool.

Team entries for the 2019 South West Regatta are now open.

The event will take place on March 2 and 3 and will include the Victorian St Ayles Skiff Championships and the  Australian Whale Boat Championships.

Whale boat teams consist of six people – five rowers and a sweep.

Skiffs are smaller and lighter than whale boats and require four rowers and a coxswain.

Boats are available for team practice sessions from November 1, so teams can become more familiar with the vessels while building up their fitness.

Plus, the training can be as fun as the race itself. What’s not to love about a regular rowing session with your friends?

No previous rowing experience is necessary, so round up your crew and give it a try.

A come and try day will also be held on November 4, 11 & 18.

For more information and to register a team contact Bec Elmes on wracing [at] warrnambool [dot] vic [dot] gov [dot] au or 5559 4800.
