Posted: 24 January 2020
Notice reference #: 1HA4eQ

Seeking schools with rowing to join the Australian teams U18 girls and boys competing with Malta in Valletta Harbour where 58,000 sick and wounded ANZACs disembarked for hospital treatment.

Small teams of girls and boys required to form U18, U17 and U16 to represent NZ for 25 April 2021.

FISA approved boats will be used – either quads or twos (being finalised).

Great educational experience for approx. one week stay, visiting special WWI sites, attending the ANZAC service where NZ soldiers are buried, training before ANZAC Day event and more.

Amazing opportunity representing NZ plus bringing awareness across New Zealand communities – forgotten chapter of WWI.

Recommendation for accommodation and travel dates will be provided.
