THIS Sunday, eight members of the Tweed Heads and Coolangatta Rowing Club will be competing in a lead up regatta to the NSW, Queensland and Australian master titles.

The Norwalk River Rowing Association (NRRA) Master championship is a regatta held in Murwillumbah and will draw in competitors from all over NSW and Queensland.

Head Coach at the Tweed Heads and Coolangatta Rowing Club Garry Annand said most of the competitors trained constantly.

"You get a variety of ages that compete in the NRRA Master championships; it's for over 27's," Mr Annand said.

"We've got eight competitors from the Tweed Heads and Coolangatta Rowing club competing on Sunday and most are in their late 40's or 50's.

"It's a lifestyle, they train nearly every day.

"The distance they will be competing in is 1000 metres.

"The master season starts now with the Australian titles being held in May, and the NRRA regatta is a lead up"

The competitors include Peter and Learne Faint- Kevin and Cathy Nelson, Renee McKeon, Tammy Tunsted, Andre West and Garry Annand.
