Fantastic effort by the 23 people who attended the first day of State Championships for 2017 today.

We did some outstanding racing with “very creditable” results, some highly competitive performances, great teamwork and support all day.

Our Tens Mixed placed third wining Bronze medals –

Heat 1 – 3rd 3.4 seconds behind 1st

Heat 2 – 1.78 seconds behind 1st

Heat 3 – 4th 2.00 seconds behind 1st

Our Open Tens placed third over the day winning Bronze medals –

Heat 1 – 4th -4.54 seconds behind 1st

Heat 2 – 3rd 4.4 seconds behind 1st

Heat 3 – 3rd 2.84 seconds behind 1st

Our Women’s Tens –

Heat 1 – 4th 2.23seconds of 1st place

Heat 2 – 5th 4.3 seconds of 1st

Heat 3 – 3rd 4.77 of 1st

Our Mixed 20s –

Heat 1 – 4th 0.56 second behind 1st

Heat 2 – 4th 1.2 seconds behind 1st

Heat 3 – 4th )no time recorded)

In the Mixed 2,000m racing we placed second winning Silver medals, only 2 seconds behind the winning time, imagine what it could have been if we had not been held up on the last turn, not being able to overtake a slower boat for the full 80m of the turn. This race was the outstanding performance of the day for Forza.

Given the quality of the opposition all our racing was an outstanding result.

Big thanks –

Ø Bred & Deb for hauling boats to Champion Lakes

Ø Chris for taking heads, tails, drums etc.

Ø Merinda, Orlando & Neville for assisting with coaching
