Rowing Geelong welcomes competitors and spectators to the 144th Barwon Regatta being held on the weekend of January 26th and 27th this year.

On the Sunday afternoon at 3pm there will be held a dedication of the Morell Reserve, which is the spectator area around the Judges Box at the finish line of the Barwon River Rowing Course. The naming of the reserve is in honour of the late Bob Morell OAM, a large contributor to the sport of rowing in Geelong.
