EIGHT OAR CREWS
IN SOLID TRAINING
Both local eight-oar crews have
settled down to solid training in
preparation for the champion
eights of Queensland, to be held at
and which event will also deter-
mine the State crew to compete
in the King's Cup race at Hobart
For some unknown reason the
crews have talked too long before
getting into action, and with only
four weeks to go, they have a long
way to go before theynwill be up
to championship standard.
The crews to represent the re-
spective clubs are:— M.R.C .R.
Wilson (str.). R. Shaw. M. Shaw.
P. Scriven. D. Witt. V. Lock. B.
Dow, N. Black: W.B.R.C. J. Eadie
(atr.). C. Ward. K. Gardiner. L.
Badderson. M. Aberdeen. P. Miller.
W. Scott, H. Taylor. The Mary-
borougli crew is in the hands of
E. Cook and Wide Bay under J.
The Maryborough crew is using
its boat nicely and rowing with a
swing, but there is not a great
deal of sting in the catch which
requires more of a shoulder lift.
The Wide Bay crew is concen-
trating on the catch, but losing its
sting a great deal by not having a
steady boat.
Jack Sullivan, our veteran
sculler, only 72 years of age, last
Sunday, set out to establish a
local record in sculling from
Maryborough to Tiaro and back.
Leaving the Maryborough shed at
8 o'clock he put his head down
and covered the first 3 miles in
19 minutes and took 36 minutes
for the 5 miles The old Yengarie
refinery was passed at 9.30 and
under Antigua Bridge- at 10 30
The next landmark was the home
of the old time champion scul-
lers, the Ford brothers, which was
reached at 10.55. A stop was made
at Hell's Gate, where big rocks
jut out from each side causing a
head down again Jack arrived at
Tiaro at 11.30. and getting out on
a sandbank just above the bridge,
refreshed himself with a dip in
Before leaving for home he
scratched on one of the cement
piers of the bridge. Jack Sullivan
rowed from Maryborough to Tiaro
in 3½ hours.
The tide was full when the re-
turn journey commenced, this be-
ing necessary as there are a few
shallow falls to cross when the
tide falls. A head wind was en-
countered on the return which
made the water fairly rough in
parts and slowed the pace. A
stop was also made for a drink
from some people fishing on the
bank, and the last 3 to 4 miles
was rowed against the tide. The
time taken on the return trip was
5 hours. Although .lack admits it
was a bit lonely, he said the
scenery in parts is beautiful and
the trip well worthwhile.
As the distance to Tiaro is ap-
proximately 31 miles by the
river, this feat is a great triumph
for our veteran, whom we claim
is still the finest waterman on the
river, and his record is one that
will stand for a long time.
