Head of the Yarra 2016

published: 29-Nov-2016

MUBC entered 10 crews in this years Head of the Yarra. Three crews MMH8, FMD8 and FO8 were defending champions and retained their titles this year.

Notable performances are (oldest to youngest)

  • Male Masters H8 started the regatta off at 10:30am, no-one in front and soon no-one in sight behind. Across the line two minutes ahead. Good to beat Toowong.
  • MUBC had not one, but two Male Masters H8 (70yo) crews. Next year we might even have an I (that’s 75yo).
  • Male Masters F8 obtained second position starting at the back of the 17 crew event and passed about nine crews. Downside was that Mosman started 10 secs in front, also past those nine crews and gave us wash for 8.6km. A very bumpy ride. Good to beat Toowong again.
  • Female Masters D8 pick-up up another handy recruit in Samantha Dell this year, started first in their category and cleared out. How good is this, another topping of Toowong.
  • The Springhead ladies Female C8 enjoy the Spring weather but have the sense to avoid the heat of summer and the cold od winter. Great to have you at MUBC
  • Female Open 8, what a boat load of talent. Watch from the finish line a crew in perfection.
  • Male Open 8, no superstars, just nine club members trying their hardest and representing MUBC with pride. 
Congratulations to all
