Rowing in Australia

In May this year, the Board of Rowing Australia (RA) appointed a Working Group to consider the desirability and viability of establishing a Commission within RA which had as its primary focus the fostering of rowing in Australia and the enhancement of domestic rowing. The working group, comprising Bryan Weir (Chair), Brigadier Alison Creagh AM CSC (Retd), Andrew Michelmore AO, Andrew Rowley, Craig James OAM, Ian Robson and Sarah Cook, has reached preliminary conclusions and prepared a draft report.

Before finalising the report and presenting it the RA Board, the Working Group is distributing the draft to the wider rowing community for feedback and comment.

Comments on the draft are now invited and may be emailed to Ian Robson at [email protected] who will distribute them to the working group for consideration. To give the working group time to finalise its report, all comments should be submitted prior to 30 September 2021.
