Christies Beach has a long history of success in the boat area and we are always looking for more rowers will to take on the training it requires to become a competitive rower. Once a member has completed their Bronze medallion, they are able to begin training in a boat.
During competition events: a boat crew shall consist of five competitors, four of whom shall be “rowers” and a “sweep” who controls the boat by use of a sweep oar and commands to the rowers.
Boat crews start at the water’s edge holding their boats ready. On the starting signal, crews row around their assigned turning buoy situated approximately 400 metres off shore and return to the beach. The winner is the first crew to pass their boat between the finish flags on the beach.
If you are interested in becoming a boat rower, please feel free to contact our clubs Boat Captain or Club Captain. For more information please Contact Us.
