  • North Shore Rowing Club 1A Northcote Road Auckland New Zealand (map)

Come along to Lake Pupuke and support our first year crew members as they compete for what may be their first time against a number of neighbouring Auckland schools and clubs.

The regatta will be held at the North Shore Rowing Club at Lake Pupuke (off Mary Poynton Crescent) and is scheduled to run from 10.00 - 14.30 with a small prize giving ceremony at the end.

All are welcome, and as usual our fabulous sausage sizzle will be going!

The regatta is run via a simple format:
- All races will be over approx. 400 meters and raced in recreational boats that are very wide, easy to row and virtually un-tippable.
- Each race will have three to four boats.
- Each placing will progress to a final therefore giving each crew member a minimum of two races.

All competing crew members, please ensure that you wear your full uniform for this regatta - rowsuit and yellow cap and bring along your hoodie and some dark blue or black shorts or tracksuit bottoms for when not on water.
All long hair must be tied up for racing and remember to bring your sunscreen, water bottles and some snacks.

We would like to invite all club members and crew members down to cheer on our crews and enjoy the regatta.

There will be a BBQ for those that fancy a bit of a sausage sizzle and the atmosphere at this event is always great fun.

Can all non competing crew members please make all efforts to attend wearing your hoodies and yellow caps to support our novice crew members in their first Auckland regatta and also to help out if needed.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
