DOUBLE or nothing, Toorak’s Power House Rowing Club coxed four bet they can win the Henley Royal Regatta.
The five – Conrad Tulloch (37, Hampton East), Drew Holman (38, Hawthorn East), Shane O’ConnorSmith (40, Preston), Nick Inglis (37, Richmond) and cox Nicole Grant (37, Niddrie) – are twice the age of other crews in England’s esteemed river carnival, but Tulloch says this gives them the advantage of experience.
The Power House crew gained automatic qualification in the regatta based on results from the past year. Among them, they won 15 gold medals at the World Masters championship in 2009; the A Grade State Championship this year; and came second at May’s Australian National Championship by 0.9secs over 2000m.
‘‘ The winning crew included three members of the French national U23 team,’’ Tulloch said.
