Welcome to the Iron Cove Classic, Sydney’s Classic Rowing Series around Cockatoo Island!

Iron Cove Classic (ICC) comprises three seperate events, each hosted by one of the local bay rowing clubs:  Balmain, Drummoyne and Leichardt. The races are held each year fortnightly over three Sundays in October and November.

The series has been established to provide clubs with an opportunity to promote and encourage big boat rowing whilst working on improving strength and endurance as a lead up to shorter distance events later in the season.
We hope to see many clubs and schools using the Iron Cove Classics to build combination and measure improvement over the series and have some fun on a challenging course.

Medals will be awarded in each category at all three ICC events at a medal ceremony to be held over breakfast at Leichhardt Rowing Club 30 minutes after the last crew finishes.

The fastest cumulative time of the series for a Men’s and a Women’s crews will also be presented with the Jim Walker Perpetual Shields;. This award is sponsored by Drummoyne Rowing Club and will be presented following the final race.

The dates for the 2017 season will be the 15th October, 29th October and 11th November.

Please visit the Race and Course pages for further information about the race and its rules.

We look forward to seeing you on the water!
