We had a very successful start to 2019 at the Cambridge Town Cup and NICC regattas. Lake Karapiro 2019
Fergus McSwiney, Carl Pracey and Jonathan Winter are all racing at the Henley Royal Regatta this week! Fergus is rowing for Waikato, Carl for Cornell, and Jono for Yale.
This is the stuff our dreams are made of! Three of ours who all became MAGSROW graduates at the end of 2015 now go on to row at arguably the world's most prestigious rowing event, taking the strength, excellence and grit they built in their early days at MAGSROW through to representing world famous universities. Wow... fantastic work boys!!!

Before we get stuck into the new season we do want to say a big Thank You to Lynne Taylor and Kristine Brothers for their tireless and gritty support of our squad over the last few years. Hope to see you both lakeside some time soon and don't worry we will always have a job for you to do - if you miss us. Thanks again.
