We farewelled Colour City member Jan Richards with a guard of honour and a final stint as drummer on her last lap of the Lake in October. Jan has been a wonderful Club member taking on publicity, grant writing, official, recruiting, Squad, and Western Region Regatta roles for the club. She was quickly known for her red lippy, enthusiasm and pep talks. Look out Derwent Storms – here comes Jan!
Congratulations to coach and sweep Phil Lambert for achieving Level 5 Sweep status with DBNSW !!!! This is a significant achievement for the Western Region – a first! The Level 5 Sweep has notably contributed to the development of the sport and sweeping over many years. For example, running sweep workshops, sharing new information and techniques with other sweeps and of course being an awesome sweep at training, regattas and mentoring.
