After three years (1993-95) with New Zealand Women’s rugby, Jude returned to rowing in a Junior Women’s Rowing coaching capacity, including three years with the Rangi Ruru Girls’ School rowing team and a New Zealand Junior Women’s Four in 1996.
In 2001 Jude and crew-mate Stephanie Brown became the first all-women crew to complete the Trans-Atlantic rowing race – finishing fourth overall - an incredible achievement over a gruelling 4760 kilometres.
