Water Taxis Combined were lucky to be part of the Australian Boat Race held on Sydney Harbour on 26th October 2014, providing transport for university dignitaries and the safety staff.
The Australian Boat Race is the annual rowing match race between the Sydney and Melbourne University Boat Club. Held annually, the venue alternates between the Yarra River in the heart of Melbourne and on the Sydney Harbour. It encapsulates the long-standing rivalry between two great cities and two great universities. It is set to become a showcase event on each of the cities’ iconic watercourses and is the new chapter of a 150 year old rivalry between these two Universities both on and off the water.
Our fleet was used to transport dignitaries from Sydney and Melbourne University. We also carried the safety staff of doctors and life savers.
In a result fitting their close rivalry, honours were split evenly between the University of Sydney and University of Melbourne with the women’s eight crew from Melbourne winning the Bella Guerin Trophy and the men’s eight crew from Sydney winning the Edmund Barton Trophy. It was a great day on the Harbour for our skippers and the whole team at Water Taxis Combined.
