It was a fitting end to an incredible season for the rowing community with the annual Rower of the Year Awards.
Erik Horrie was crowned the 2018 Para-rower if the Year, the Men's and Women's Fours awarded the Men's and Women's Crews of the year and Josh Booth was awarded the Gina Rinehart Rowing Leadership Award.
