Performances of Olympic-class boats at the 2013 world championships were in line with expectations but at the lower end of the forecast range. The Paralympic class boats exceeded expectations and finished on top of the medal tally. Rowing Australia’s (RA) high performance program has changed significantly since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, where the Australian teams had a solid medal-winning performance but failed to win a gold medal. There is sufficient evidence to suggest rowing will perform strongly at future major events including the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Following an independent review of its governance arrangements, RA has implemented significant constitutional reform to achieve alignment with the mandatory governance principles. RA will need to continue to work closely with its member states to implement these recommendations.

In participation, RA’s Adopt a School rowing pilot program exceeded its target numbers in 2013, with significant increases in total participants, students involved in racing and students who joined clubs at the end of the program.
