New national records were established for the 2000m LW-M-PR3-PD (Julian Bajada, 8:29.5) and 500m HW-M-PR3-ID categories (Isaac Borg, 1:56.0).

This year’s overall lightweight female winner was Siġġiewi Rowing Club rower Claire Sammut who won all three 2000m, 1000m and 500m open age categories. Sairita Cassar won the heavyweight female 2000m and 500m open age categories whilst USA rower Finley Quinn, affiliated with the University of Malta Rowing Club won the 1000m open age category.
