International Women’s Day Race to Raise

By Matt Marden - 21/02/2024

For the past 5 years, Rowing Queensland and River City Women’s Rowing Club have hosted the event on the Brisbane River, evolving from a casual race to a community race and breakfast raising funds and awareness for various causes.

We are racing to raise awareness for women in rowing and the incredible opportunities available to them, alongside the support of our community.  This year, Toowong Rowing Club will be our hosts and together we plan to direct funds raised back into our rowing community by subsidising boat licences for rowers and coaches and providing additional training to build confidence and skill driving ability on the Brisbane river.  This is in response to the need highlighted by our Clubs.

Join us on Sunday, March 3rd, at the St Lucia reach of the Brisbane River.  If you wish to boat out of TRC before the regatta, please email All crews are welcome to boat at the club before and after breakfast. Spectators and friends are also welcome to join us just for breakfast and coffee.  Gather your Club members, form mixed or female crews, and be a part of this meaningful event.

Stay tuned for further details about the post-Easter boat training sessions.
