First RaceAfter being briefed by our coach Andrew, 5 teams were announced to be ready for the first race. The aim was to practice rowing up the river and race back down with each boat being timed.

Each boat raced twice and the top 5 boats that had the fastest time would make it to the final race becoming that one step closer to getting their hands on the Jansons Cup!
