Our squad competed at the the Spring Regatta on Lake Karapiro on Saturday 19 November. The weather largely behaved, all racing was completed and our crews performed well. The time trial event was a little confusing at the start with all boats completing their first 1000m dash down the course in haphazard fashion, despite initial indications that they would be racing in pairs. Crews were allocated into heats and finals based on times, and had fun racing in mixed races. It was a great chance for a practice run before the Christmas Regatta in December and the coaches were pleased to see our crews dig in during their final races, and come through with some good placings.
