About the project

To reach my goals of getting to a state and national representative level for rowing, I need your help!

My crew and I have been training solidly through these past 2 seasons to get to the National Championships. Sadly for all competitors, last year’s championship was cancelled due to the Covid virus. 

I’ve been rowing for 4 years - training 7 days a week! Now, to continue my journey toward my goals, I need to get a competitive racing shell for my crew. There’s currently a second-hand Filippi coxless quadruple scull/coxless four available. Even though it’s not new it’s in excellent shape and is the current design. This will be an advantage of over 10 seconds on our current boat. Although the club my crew and I belong to is supporting us the best they can, they simply don’t have the resources or the finances to be able to obtain this top end boat. If we can get this equipment, it will place us on a level playing field with the large metropolitan clubs and private schools we’ll be competing with. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I welcome any donation you can make. Remember, all donations over $2 are tax deductible! Can you go without a coffee this week to help me realise my dreams?

Help me be the best athlete I can be!
