50th Anniversary of the 1969 Jubilee King's Cup Regatta

This event marks the 50th Anniversary of the running of the prestigious 1969 Jubilee King's Cup Regatta which, in that year, was held on the Burnett River, Bundaberg. Rowers from around Australia competed for this coveted trophy.

To honour those Rowers, Bundaberg Rowing Club Inc. and the Bundaberg Past Rowers and Supporters Assoc. will be combining their efforts to host several activities. The day commences with a Welcome Breakfast, following training at 1 Toonburra Street, Bundaberg hosted by the Bundaberg Past Rowers and Supporters Assoc. Spectators are invited to to witness some of the original 1969 Rowing crews and our current Rowers vie for the Spike Lloyd-Jones Trophy at Bucca as part of the celebrations. This exciting Race is scheduled to get underway at 4:00 pm at the Bucca Rowing Facility, Longs Road and will be followed by Post Race nibbles ($5).
