South Island Club Rowing Regatta

Catherine McDermott —

We were really fortunate to be able to attend the South Island Club Rowing Regatta held this past weekend at Lake Ruataniwha. The organisation of the regatta was fantastic under the Red level.

Due to windy conditions on the Saturday afternoon and early Sunday morning, some finals had to be cancelled and the fastest times from the heats were taken for placings, a bit tough if you were in a slow heat. These have just been updated and we have ended up with 4x Bronze and 1x Gold, a fantastic effort from all the rowers.
