The Melbourne Argonauts are gearing up to compete in the Montreal 2006 1st World Outgames regatta. Twenty rowers have already registered and those numbers are expected to climb as the year progresses. In the lead up to the games, the club is hosting a rowing boot camp in Nagambie 23-25 Sep 2005, and a women’s rowing camp in Dimboola 02 –04 Dec 2005. The club’s competitive boats will also participate in the upcoming Rowing Victoria regatta season.


Many rowers and clubs are faced with deciding between competing in the Chicago Gay Games Regatta and the Montreal World Outgames Regatta. According to Argonauts spokesman, Peter Sagar, the club decided to make Montreal the principal focus because the regatta will be staged inn the Montreal Olympic rowing basin. The course is a fully buoyed, 6 lane international standard course. Many of the rowers are also very proud that the regatta will be sanctioned and calendared by the world international rowing body, FISA.


The Melbourne Argonauts welcome other Australian rowers to join them in Montreal. Any interested rowers are encouraged to email the club. Sagar’s parting comment: “We look forward to meeting and racing the world in 2006 in Montreal. SEE YOU THERE!”
