JB Sharp 2021 – Dates Announced!

The 2021 JB Sharp Memorial Regatta Series dates have been confirmed! In consultation with Rowing NSW and to allow for the rescheduling of the Rowing NSW State Masters’ Championships, the JB Sharp Committee has rescheduled the Sharp Series regattas to commence on 18 July 2021, rather than on 4 July 2021 as previously announced.

VALE: Louis Petrin

The Sharp Series Committee was devastated to hear earlier this year that Rowing Stalwart, boat race official and rowing historian Louis Petrin of Drummoyne Rowing Club had passed away unexpectedly on 8 April 2021. Louis was an incredible figure in the rowing community – a tireless and selfless volunteer, a meticulous historian, and a kind and gentle soul.
