Regatta success for City, Dimboola rowers

Horsham City and Dimboola rowing club members enjoyed success at the Rutherglen Rowing Regatta at the weekend. 

The event, on Lake Moodemere, was the first club regatta since COVID-19 lockdowns started in March last year. 

More than 500 rowers competed in 337 races throughout Saturday and Sunday. 

Horsham City sent a small contingent, as many rowers were still on holidays.

The club had two entries in the female masters double scull, with Sarah Tottenham, stroke, and Sally Marcroft, bow, scoring a win over Power House, Richmond and the other Horsham crew.

Both Horsham crews had to give a two-second start to the city-based crews. The race was hotly contested, with Tottenham and Marcroft catching the Power House crew just before the finish line to win the final by half a metre. 

The club also achieved second place in the mixed double scull.

Dimboola’s C Grade coxed quad celebrated back-to-back titles at Rutherglen. 

The team comprised Tori Menzel, cox, Freya Colbert, bow, Tilli Menzel, two, Alex Salter, three, and Maddy Toet, stroke. 

Salter and Toet won a women’s C Grade double scull final, while Rory Hallinan-Johns won two male under-15 single scull events.

Dimboola sent 11 rowers to the competition, competing in 46 events.
