Robert Jones was 2nd with 209 km, Nigel Millard was 3rd with 132, Hannes Hofer was 4th with 104 and Gregory Wood 5th with 90 km.

Starting in 2006, BARC rowers have voluntarily recorded their daily rowing distance in the “BARC Distance Rowing Challenge” rowing ledger at the boathouse. In this voluntary, friendly competition, those who row the greatest distance (e.g. Top 5) are recognized on a monthly basis, by way of posts to this section of our web site. On an annual basis, those rowers who row one million (or more) meters (1000+ kilometers or 621+ miles), over the past year, are recognized and awarded a BARC Distance Challenge Award, typically at our annual meeting. The awards vary by year, from plaques to BARC-inscribed beer mugs! All results, for all years, are available below.
