DONATE TO OUR FLEET

Our equipment is designed for women. Besides the hull shape and weight of our boats, three other points of contact: foot stretchers, oar handles and seats are purchased specifically to suit our membership. Therefore every piece of equipment purchased can be used by every member of our club. There is also ongoing maintenance, which every member has an opportunity to be involved in, and the costs are covered through our program.

The AUSTRALIAN SPORTS FOUNDATION (ASF) is Australia’s leading nonprofit sports fundraising organisation and charity and help RCWRC develop an inclusive and active fleet. We encourage everyone to make a tax deductible donation annually to our ASF Fleet Fund so we can continue to provide fit for purpose equipment for our members.

The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.

The sunrise, of course, doesn’t care if we watch it or not. It will keep on being beautiful, even if no one bothers to look at it.
