2017 Under 21 Trans Tasman Regattas

This regatta is scheduled to be run in two parts. The first leg is to be held in Sydney from 29th June to 1st July 2017 with the second leg held at Lake Karapiro in New Zealand from 24-28th August 2017.

This is a teams event very similar to past series and highly effective in providing high level competition in a number of boat classes. There is one reserve per gender per team and squad rather than crew coaches.

The scullers row singles and a double. The sweep rowers pairs and a four. The scullers and sweep combine into eights. The reserves race a mixed double scull.

For W1x, M1x, W2- and M2-,
1st – 6 points
2nd – 4 points
3rd – 2 points

Results

Penrith Regatta 29th June to 1st July 2017

 

Rowing Australia reported on the fisrt leg as follows:

Australia’s U21 Rowing Team started its retention bid of the Rusty Robertson Trophy in fine form this past weekend, winning the first leg of the regatta by 155 points to New Zealand’s 127.
 
Racing began on Thursday (29 June) with Australia’s crews winning four out of the eight small boat finals, with a noticeably strong performance from the Lightweight Men’s Double Scull of Patrick Boere and Chase Deitner who crossed the line some eight seconds ahead of New Zealand’s Jordan Gasson and Joseph Graham.
 
Friday (30 june) was an extremely positive day for the Australians with the U21 Women’s and Men’s Fours and the U21 Women’s and Men’s Quadruple Sculls all winning their finals and securing the maximum points for the country. The Mixed Lightweight Double Scull of Mitchell Reinhard and Celia Cowan finished second in their final, to add another point to Australia’s total, which saw the hosts sitting comfortably on 135 points at the close of the second day’s racing.
 
Saturday (1 July) saw the U21 Men’s and Women’s Eights go head to head in the final day of racing. The two teams each create a male and female crew, made up from the various athletes that have raced throughout the three-day regatta and Saturday saw Australia's U21 Men’s Eight win in both their heat and final, while the U21 Women’s Eight came in second to a strong New Zealand U21 Women’s Eight.
 
With the final victory of the U21 Men’s Eight in the bag, Australia has finished the first leg of the Trans-Tasman Regatta with a total of 155 points, and will travel to New Zealand in August for the second leg. The team will no doubt be buoyed by these results, which put them in good stead to retain the Rusty Robertson Trophy which is awarded to the victors of the U21 Trans-Tasman Regatta.
 
Head Coach, Jason Lane said: “We’re extremely pleased with the performances of the whole team here in Penrith on the first leg of the Trans-Tasman Regatta. It’s been great for the young athletes to get out and race in their crews and get plenty of wins under their belts.
 
“This certainly will have given the team confidence as they head into the second leg in New Zealand next month, however we won’t be resting on our laurels ahead of the second leg. The team will prepare with a camp ahead of travelling to Lake Karapiro to race in the second-leg and hopefully secure the Rusty Robertson Trophy once again.”
 
Australia will travel to New Zealand on 21 August, with the second-leg of the U21 Trans-Tasman Regatta set to take place from 24 to 26 August on Lake Karapiro.
