Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

More than 300 row­ers took to the wa­ter on Porirua Har­bour for the Good­will Re­gatta re­cently, with lo­cal row­ers per­form­ing with dis­tinc­tion.

Af­ter hav­ing to can­cel the day’s row­ing on Oc­to­ber 27, the rel­a­tive calm the fol­low­ing day al­lowed for 31 races to take place.

Of these, Porirua Row­ing Club won 14, came sec­ond nine times and were third in five races. De­spite these ex­cel­lent re­sults, PRC came in third of the six clubs over­all, be­hind Star Boat­ing Club and Welling­ton Row­ing Club.

One of the or­gan­is­ers, Robert Flett, said it was a fan­tas­tic day of rac­ing that was made pos­si­ble by a huge num­ber of vol­un­teers and spon­sors, along with um­pires, judges, boat driv­ers and starters.
