Radford quad in a time trial

Radford rowers, old and new, hit the water at the first opportunity of competition to take part in the Rowing ACT Winter Time Trial series last weekend. A mix of ages and experience powered down the course in big and small boats over the course of the weekend.

On Saturday, Collegian and Australian Rowing representative Luke Letcher set the fastest overall course time in the men’s single, and Year 9 rower Hannah Sampson courageously made her time trial debut on the same morning. The conditions were perfect, with more than one long-held course record falling.  Competitors were keen to get out and race, after missing the usual summer regatta bonanza of Australian Championships and World Championship and Olympic racing. 

The following day, James Dixon and Chris Bush represented Radford in the double scull, and senior rowers Damien Schroder, Will Gregory, Sam Roberts and Ethan Toscan set the overall fastest overall and fastest men’s quad time. 

We look forward to more rowers competing in the next event in mid-August.
