With many AJRA boats posting medalist finishes at the John Hunter Regatta, the club brought home the Junior Team Points trophy with 681 points, besting second place by almost 300 points. The day started with huge thunderstorms, delaying the regatta by 4 hours, but luckily the officials were able to get a full schedule of racing in the second half of the day, allowing all AJRA squads great opportunities for valuable race experience.
The highlights of the day were the Men’s Varsity 8+ and Women’s Varsity 4+ bringing home first place by open water in both championship events, with each boat also qualifying through their heat with a first place finish. Both novice squads also brought home first place medals, with the Men’s Novice A 8+ and the Women’s Novice B 8+ both taking first place in their flights.
