CDRA Sprint Championships Results
Congratulations to the following gold medal rowers
CDRA Sprints held on Sunday 26th November at Throsby Creek.
It was a gorgeous day despite some gusty winds later in the afternoon. The buzz of the race cars was only just noticeable but
the nearby helicopter got a good workout, ferrying a constant stream of customers for a bird's-eye view over the race.
