Melbourne Argonaut rower Meredith “Maxi” Williams, competing in a composite crew with rowers from the Allan Mitchell Club, rowed to victory in the women’s Masters B 8+ at the 2006 Australian Masters Rowing Championships.

The boat, representing Victoria, won by 0.3 seconds, and closed a six year gap for Victoria at the winner’s podium.


Overall, Maxi brought home 2 gold medals, 1 silver medals, and 3 bronze medals. Maxi commented that it was “a special moment” wearing the Argonauts colors and hearing the Melbourne Argonauts name being called out as part of a composite crew at the regatta.


The event marked the first time that any rowers from the Melbourne Argonaut Rowing Club had competed in the national competition. Several other club members competed as well. The weekend event was one of several that the club will use in preparing for the 2006 Montreal 1st World Outgames Regatta 30 – 31 Jul 2006.
