Manning to host Central Districts rowing regatta

ELEVEN clubs will be represented at the Central Districts Rowing Association Regatta to be held on the Manning River this weekend.

Events will start on Saturday morning and conclude early on Sunday afternoon.

The CDRA takes in clubs from the Central Coast to Port Macquarie.

This will be the final club regatta for Manning rowers before the State and national masters championships to be held at Penrith and Tasmania. Up to nine Manning rowers are expected to make the trip to Tasmania for the Australian championships.

Manning is again expected to perform strongly in masters events this weekend, while Hugh McLeod will be defending the open championship single scull title.

“I’m probably not as fit as I’d like to be, but I had a good win at the Endevour Regatta at Berry Park recently, so hopefully I can build on that,’’ McLeod said.
