VURC President rows to bronze at NZ Rowing Championships

Congratulations to VURC President, Griffin Hunt, and Club Captain, Tim Wilson, who recently won bronze medals in the Men’s Club 8+ as a member and coach of a Wellington composite crew.

It’s great to see VURC rowers achieving success at Club level. VURC is focussed on increasing the number of rowers who go on to complete a Club season at the completion of the University season.

It’s also positive to see collaboration between Clubs in the Wellington region. By each contributing rowers, the Clubs gave their rowers the opportunity to achieve results that would have otherwise been impossible.

Bronze medal winners: The Wellington Composite  crew including Griffin Hunt and Tim Wilson (Coach).
