This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the WA Rowing Club’s annual
Lord Mayor’s Cup regatta. The event is set to feature 32 four-man

need your help to ensure we get sufficient crews for the day.
Our members are our greatest assets: The enthusiasm you bring
to rowing is infectious and I ask you to use that enthusiasm to
attract some crews to the competition. Ask your employer. Or,
if you have your own company, consider entering a crew. Ask your
mates. Ask your mum.
LMC is not only a huge fundraiser for the Club, but exposes more
people to the sport of rowing who may not have had the courage
to participate before. In fact, our current Captain and a Vice
President are both LMC participants.
entry fee for each crew includes four weeks of experienced coaching
with a strong emphasis on team-building and problem-solving, as
well as competition on the day.
of the reasons the Lord Mayor’s Cup has been successful for many
years is that rowing is a sport that can be taken up at any age
and any fitness level. It is also low-impact so people who find
other activities difficult often excel.
the regatta has been a fun event with a good sense of humour and
prizes for best-dressed crews. We have a range of races for all
levels of experience, awesome prizes and also cater for those
who wish to have a grudge match perhaps within a company.
of the feedback from the 2010 Lord Mayor’s Cup is as follows:
Excellent event, well organised and brought with enthusiasm!
All in all it was a fun experience!
We are so glad that we participated. The day was really fun and
a great team-building experience.
