Our Fabulous Master Rowers

Sean and Shane winning double in NZ Masters 2014 (2)

The Shane and Sean Speed Team

Belated congratulations to Sean O’Connell and Shane Gibson for their impressive win in the double (C grade – 42 to 49 years) at the New Zealand Masters in February.  Not too shabby for you young fellows!  Sean and Shane then joined Jaime Hutter and Marc Simmonds in the quad and gained a bronze in the C grade.  Nice Work.

Jill Austin has also been making us proud.  She needed a sack to carry her medals from the same event.  Her successes included:  A gold in the womens singles C grade, a gold in doubles B grade (Jill rowed with a composite crew with Dunstan), a bronze in the mixed doubles C grade with Mark Simonds, a gold in the quad B grade (Jill rowed with a mixed composite  crew with Otago) and a silver in the quad B grade (again with Otago).

Jill was on a winning streak at another regatta a few months later.  She joined up with Amanda Inkster at the Lakes Hayes regatta and won the women’s double.   Impressive!
