Notice reference #: 1HAEm6

U18 Rowing Regatta on ANZAC Day in Malta to remember and bring awareness behind the scenes of Gallipoli where 58,000 wounded ANZACs were treated in Malta during WWI, buried ANZACs, volunteers from NZ and Australian Nurses and more, will be held on 25 April 2022.

At this early stage, I require expression of interest, from schools/rowing clubs/individuals to form a strong NZ team to consist of: 5 x U18 boys and 5 x U18 girls plus coaches. 4x Olympic boats will be used and up to 5 competitive races will take place.

Final call for safe travel will be made in April 2021 with FISA.

Australia U18 teams (girls and boys) are locked in, Malta University Rowing Club has started preparations for the event for 2022. The 1 week stay will be educational with special sites of WW1/WWII. 

Training sessions are planned daily leading up to the ANZAC Event.

All teams will be staying at 1 location close to Valletta. 

Special buses have been arranged for each day's stay - all will be able to attend special morning ANZAC service (by invitation only) including staff.
