Different Strokes had a jam-packed weekend with Chinese New Year Regatta on Saturday and the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Fair Day on Sunday.
We had 6 crews hit the water on Saturday at the prestigious Chinese New Year Regatta in Darling Harbour and the results were just amazing! Our Mixed Maters and Premier Mixed Tonic did really well in their heats. The day saw our Premier Mixed Gin crew made the grand final in the history of the club and came 5th…woohoo! Our Opens crew is performing from strength to strength….our boys did amazingly well and came very close to making the finals. Our Masters Women defending their title with back to back wins! And then our Premier Women’s crew screaming home in the final to take 2nd in a close finish to PD’s. Amazing job Different Strokes Ladies!!!
Over at Fair Day we were busy recruiting new paddlers, competing in the annual tug-o-war challenge and selling lots of baked goods, continuing to raise funds for the club.
