The Australian Boat Race  & China Update 2019

The Australian Boat Race (held annually) between Melbourne University and the University of Sydney will take place on the Yarra River on Saturday, 12 October 2019.

Wesley College will have a strong presence at the highly regarded regatta with our winning Rosebowl crew due to go head-to-head with Ormond College from Melbourne University.

In the ‘main event’ (the Women’s Eight race for the Bella Guerin Cup), Wesley will also be represented, with current collegians Jaime Ford and Tahlia Barnet racing the longer 4.5km event.

Good luck ladies, we wish you all the best!
