Welcome to the BSRA
Welcome to the Brisbane Schoolgirls' Rowing Association
Welcome to the BSRA regatta season. This year, our competition once again takes place at Wyaralong Dam between Beaudesert and Boonah. The benefit of our wonderful location is that Wyaralong is a huge body of water that caters brilliantly to the nine BSRA schools descending on it. The course has ten lanes with an abundance of warm up and training water to access. The geography of the ten-lane course offers equal conditions for all competitors. This eliminates controversy in rowing generally.
The general regatta schedule is here on the website.
Each crew will row twice in the lead up regattas and once at the Head of the River.
The first race in the lead ups is for pennants and seeding for the Head of the River lane allocation and the second race counts for seeding only. Single sculling boats race once at each regatta.
Good luck and fair racing to all the girls.
Commentary team at the Head of the River
This year the commentary team will be reading supporter shout-outs at the Head of the River.
Please encourage your supporters to send a shout-out to their favourite daughter - or if they have two, to their second favourite daughter! - at this email address or via twitter @rowingcommentary
It will be an especially good way for absent grandparents to show their support. Please make sure to add your name and which crew you are supporting.
We wish your crews good racing, and look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.
Your rowing commentary team
