Bendigo Regatta 21 Oct 2023.

The recent Bendigo Regatta saw the First Aikman Club Female crew take to the water competing in 3 events - Female Masters 4X+, Female C Grade 4x+ and the Female Beginners 4X+.
The first race was full of controversy with the 1st across the line relegated for interference and another crew stopping before the line. Our crew finished 2nd in 2m 17.28s (480m).
The C Grade Heat went well after a slow start against some very experienced crew with our team finishing 4th in 2.24.97s
The main target event for the day was the Beginners 4X+ in which the crew finished 2nd in their Heat (NTT) thus advancing to the Final where they they held off a determined challenge to finish 3rd in 1m58.76s not far behind the 2nd placed crew.
Overall a successful day with plenty of experience gained and now looking forward to the next Regatta challenge!!

Thanks also to Bendigo RC for their assistance and use of their boat and oars on the day.

Hello Rowing Families.
We are pleased to share that members of the Magenta Club Committee had a productive meeting today with Scott Doran (Vice Principal, Community Engagement & Advancement) regarding the future of rowing at Haileybury. The school has received a lot of feedback and are taking on board the perspectives and options presented by the community, and continue to engage with students and parents to listen to their views. They also acknowledged that the communication of this decision could have been managed better.
Scott has committed to collect all feedback from the community by this Friday, and will present this to the Exec & Council. We will receive an update following their review.
We ask if you haven't shared your feedback already, please email Scott Doran before Friday to ensure that your voice is heard. It is important they hear our perspectives.
((Scott also wants to see the petitions (there is a student one running too) so please sign and share before Friday))

Thanks to the many people who are writing to and making appointments with Scott Doran and Sean Allcock about Haileybury rowing. Keep it going.
The students have a petition going so we thought we should have one too. Please sign the petition to save Haileybury rowing and share it with your friends and family and the rowing community.
Don't chip in money if asked to! That's just the platform.
