Welcome to St Augustine's Rowing

St Augustine’s Rowing was founded in 2004 and has reached successes at the highest School Boy levels in Australia. In 2013, 33 rowers and coxes enjoyed the sport boating out of Mosman Rowing Club sheds.

The programme is relatively small and maintains an international class fleet for our boys and excellent coaching staff including former St Augustine’s Captains of the Boats and former Saints 1st IV members.

Sean Murphy (class of 2014) and Zac von Appen (class of 2015) are double Australian Representatives in Rowing and started rowing at the College in Year 8.
