Australian Masters Games Sprint Day

Wednesday 13th October 2021
Champion Lakes Regatta Centre

Hi All,

This is an all-day sprint regatta for 35y-and-over Masters athletes. The event needs volunteers and many of the personnel that usually run the regattas are racing on the day. So we need help!

We realise this is a weekday, many are working, or studying/exams. However, if you are able to help, PLEASE let us know by registering on the sheet below. We need to know who can help in advance, so please put your name down early. If you're unsure this far in advance, but may be available, please indicate.

Many roles can be developed with training prior to race day. THANKS from all the older sprint folk. Sprint Technical Committee
Register here


Club Doors Left Open

REMINDER: Please close the shed doors!

It doesn't take much for someone to walk in and help themselves. If no-one is in the shed then please shut the door. All members have a key fob and it's no problem opening the shed again. 

Unfortunately there will be no insurance payout if the door is left open. We can also identify who was the last to open the door by checking our key fob software.

If you don't want to be responsible for replacing many boats we recommend being extra vigilant.
