Dear Members and Friends, LAST WEEKEND Alfred’s Misverstand Regatta Alfred’s had a great start to the regatta season at the Misverstand Heads and Spring regattas last weekend – well done to all the rowers involved.  Duncan won the MA1×, with Bully and Andrew taking revenge in winning the MA2X. Gavin got three medals with a good win in the Masters 1X and double with Geordie in a very close race.  The men had a good race in the Quad as well, coming first.  The ladies were locked in the same races as men, and competed very well! The Headsrace on Sunday was a special event, with some great rhythm work. Our next event is the Alfred’s Head Race, at Zeekoevlei this Saturday (4 Nov).

The ZVSC members were Mornay Harding, Luke Topass, Amir Yogya, Shane Joseph, Lance Curtis, Ashley Rudolf, Dean Topass and Duone Petas. The event was not as well attended as the previous years , due to the fact that school exams are starting soon (the regatta had been postponed to October from last March due to algae problems at MAC at the beginning of the year).
