This year, Royal Flying Doctor Service has been saving lives and assisting people in the outback and remote communities for 90 years so to recognise and celebrate their challenges and achievements the Flying Doctor Rowathon will be rowed over 90Kms on the two iconic Australian rivers. The Flying Doctor Rowathon is a marathon rowing event held on the Darling and Murray Rivers from Wentworth District Rowing Club (WDRC) and it raises funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Crews will row from WDRC down to the Murray and up stream to Coomealla Golf Club where they will have morning tea and perhaps make crew changes, then row back to WDRC for lunch, following which they will row up the Darling to Bob Hill’s landing for afternoon tea and then return back to WDRC. The rowing can be watched from the foreshore in front of the rowing sheds or at various locations along the Darling and Murray Rivers.
