To the athletes, thank you. Thank you for bringing great humour, enthusiasm and sporting spirit to our 25th event.
If you would like to continue rowing, we have another Learn-to-row course about to fire up, or if you are feeling a bit more confident with your skills, you can join our development squad. For more information, email email@example.com. (For those who have expressed an interest already, keep an eye on your inbox!). Without you, WARC would metaphorically sink - clearly we're quite good at literally sinking, judging by the photographs.
Check out the fantastic video put together by our audio-visual guru Dean Neal:

This event helps secure the future of our 145-year-old institution.
To the volunteers: I know for the organising team in particular, your lives were effectively put on hold as we put 25 corporate crews through their paces over a five week period, battling boat breakages, some challenging weather conditions and everything in between.
The proof of your ability shone on the day as we had what was, in my humble opinion, one of our greatest Lord Mayor's Cup events ever.
People are the greatest resource the WA Rowing Club has. The feedback and ideas from volunteers and LMC athletes alike is what will drive our event forward. So for everyone involved, please expect to receive a survey in the next week that will give you the opportunity to provide your feedback for the Lord Mayor's Cup.
In the meantime, we're already plotting purchase of new Lord Mayor's Cup-appropriate boats and merchandise for hte 26th event.
Congratulations to the winners, finalists, and all participants for coming on the day.
We could write a breakdown and commentary of events, however the old adage that a picture speaks a thousand words is difficult to argue with. With that in mind, check out the amazing photographs from Michael Smith! Click this image to go through to the photo gallery - you are welcome to download any images you like!
