Brilliant Sports. Brilliant-Online features Port Macquarie Rowing Club as they paddle together on 29th August 2021.
Port Macquarie Rowing Club (PMRC) is pleased to announce that on Sunday 29th August it is time to hit the water again for the Port Macquarie 3Rivers Mini Marathon, after the popular long running event was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID restrictions. This is a fun event open to all self-propelled watercraft including kayaks, rowing boats, surf skis, surf boats, outriggers, canoes and SUPs.
The action will commence at Log Wharf Reserve under the Telegraph Point Bridge and proceed downstream along the beautiful Wilson, Maria and Hastings Rivers from which the event takes its name. Event marshals will be present along the course to monitor progress and safety. The 25km Mini Marathon ends at the Port Macquarie Rowing Club on Hibbard Drive where paddlers can relax and enjoy music and a BBQ lunch while reliving their adventure with family and friends.
Registration for the event opens on July 12 and full information is available on: www.revolutionise.com.au/pmrc/events/104017/
Like all community sports clubs, the 35-year-old Rowing Club has experienced new challenges over the past year, with COVID restrictions impacting both social rowing activities on the Hastings, and travel to state and regional regattas. Club members have still performed very well at the regattas they were able to attend, with two first-year rowers winning the NSW D Grade double scull championship title in Sydney in April 2021.
The Port Macquarie Rowing Club is keen to welcome new rowers of all ages to the sport for exercise, social recreation and/or competition. Because rowing is such a low impact sport, age is certainly no barrier, with several club members enjoying a stimulating rowing lifestyle in their 70s and 80s.
