With the vision to spread the sport as ambassadors of rowing and to improve the quality of rowing facilities of the crew and Sri Lanka as a whole, UOM rowing crew has taken up various projects up to date since its inception. One such event was the Mora Sculling Regatta 2012 which was held on 21st and 22nd of September at the Colombo Rowing Club.

The event was organized as an alternative regatta to the Bolgoda Regatta which could not be held this year due to unavoidable circumstances. However the crew made it an opportunity to shift into a new paradigm and present the regatta in a new format.

The regatta consisted of scull, double scull, pair and quadruple scull events which were raced in a 1km course. Quadruple sculls and mixed events were new additions which brought much excitement for the participants.

The regatta was a success with the participation of many oarsmen and women from schools, clubs and task forces besieged by all their supporters. Committing themselves solely to organizing activities, UOM crew refrained from competing this year. Overall winners of each category were as follows.
