Aon Maadi Regatta 2014

Finals Day 2 - Saturday 29th March

Perfect conditions on Lake Ruataniwha. Who will ever forget the U18 8+ Maadi Cup race? What a spectactular race with Boys' High leading from start to finish. Napier BHS and St Bedes tried but couldn't bridge the gap.

Day 2 and 3

Below are the progressions as of midday Thursday
Tuesday was disrupted by a cold southerly front which blew a few boats over and a marquees blew out. Racing stopped at 12 noon Tue and recommenced about 4 pm which meant all heats were eventually raced by the end of the day. Wednesday was a good frosty fine day but not much fun for rowers, coaches and spectators. All repechage results were determined by 1500m time trials. Not what racing is meant to be. Fortunately that is behind us and today has been semis. Finals start Friday.
