Welcome to the BSRA
The Brisbane Schoolgirls Rowing Association (BSRA) is Australia’s premier schoolgirls rowing competition. With racing taking place from July – September in Queensland.
Welcome to the Brisbane Schoolgirls' Rowing Association
Welcome to the 2020 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. The first race will be for pennants and seeding for the Head of the River lane allocation and the second race will count for seeding lane allocation only for the Head of the River.
Single sculling boats race once in 2020.
Because of the disruption to the season, the BSRA will be hosting each event. Each of the four regattas (reduced from six due to COVID) are spectator free. There is no Year 8 competition either as the member schools could not consistently prepare them with the time available after the season postponement.
Catering is by Wandering Man coffee and a catering company from Boonah.
We hope that despite the challenges this year, the variety of competition opportunities inspires great racing and this sport continues to grow.
Good luck and fair racing to all the girls.
