Mannum to host Australia vs New Zealand Intervarsity Rowing Regatta 7 July 2017

The Mannum Rowing Club will host the Australia vs New Zealand Intervarsity rowing race on Friday 7th of July.

Adelaide University won the rights to host the 2017 Trans-Tasman University rowing regatta after they won the Australian title last year in Perth and have chosen Mannum as almost a straight course and the ideal river conditions.

The Trans Tasman Rowing Regatta will be held at Mannum on 7th July between 8am and 10 am and will commence adjacent to the Granite Quarry on East Front Road approximately 4 kilometres from the Mannum ferry on the road to Younghusband.

Spectator/official boats will follow the race and will finish at the Mannum Wharf at the picturesque Mary Ann Reserve.

For further information please do not hesitate to contact Dean Mobbs, President of the Mannum Rowing Club on 0437 946 104 or the Mannum Visitor Information Centre on 8569 1303.
