More row­ing events for Kara­piro

Cambridge Edition - - COMMUNITY COOKBOOK -

En­tries for this event close Oc­to­ber 26.

The Kara­piro Memo­rial Re­gatta would be held Novem­ber 18 and 19.

The re­gatta would fea­ture heats on the first day and fi­nals on day two.

The pro­gramme would be sim­i­lar to the club re­gatta last year, but mod­i­fied to cater for the new grades that were in­tro­duced with the re­vised rules of rac­ing from Row­ing New Zealand. In re­cent times, Kara­piro Row­ing had lost a num­ber of its vol­un­teers and race of­fi­cials, most re­cently Mar­tin Hyde, who was a board mem­ber and um­pire. It was thought to be fit­ting to name this event as the memo­rial re­gatta where the row­ing fra­ter­nity could hon­our the mem­ory of those who have worked so hard for Kara­piro over the years.

Kara­piro Row­ing re­ported the Kara­piro Spring Re­gatta, held Oc­to­ber 8 and 9, had smaller num­bers than pre­vi­ous years, likely caused by the school hol­i­days and be­ing six weeks ear­lier than nor­mal. But there were 36 crews which com­peted. Crews from as far away as Whangarei and Whakatane com­peted with large num­bers from Mt Al­bert Gram­mar School and the Auck­land Row­ing Club (Auck­land Dioce­san School for Girls).
