2024 Australian Masters National Championships wrap up

Published Sat 11 May 2024

19 CRC athletes traveled to Lake Barrinton in Tasmania to compete in our most successful Masters Nationals campaign to date.

With perfect weather conditions the whole week, we had many highlights from our on water performances as well as bonding together off the water. Overall the club finished 6th on the Medal Tally, and 7th on the Club Point Score (out of over 100 clubs). Morgan Dunham finished 9th and Jess Cuddy 19th on the Individual Medal Tally, and Drew Holman finished 20th on the Individual Point Score (out of over 800 athletes)!

We would also like to acknowledge Anya, Cath, Drew, Jess C and Sara who were selected to compete in the Victorian Masters State Team, each placing 4th in the women's and men's eights. Fiona was also selected as a reserve for the women’s state squad and was a valuable support to the crew in the lead up to the event.
