Rowers Enjoy a Raft of Wins at Lake Pupuke

It was a great day for the King’s College Rowing Club at Lake Pupuke on Saturday, 24 October.

We have been working patiently to build solid foundations for the Maadi Campaign in April 2016, and it was very pleasing to see evidence of this preparation in our first ‘head-to-head’ racing opportunity for the season at the WTMC-TAKA Regatta.

In the 30 races entered, our rowers attained:

  • 15 first places
  • 5 second places
  • 5 third places

As a result, our rowers were awarded the Takapuna Cup for Champion Boys' School.

Wins were achieved in the following events:

  • Men’s U16 2X – Div 1, 2 and 3
  • Men’s U15 4X – Div 1 and 2
  • Men’s U17 1x – Div 2
  • Men’s U16 4x – Div 1
  • Men’s U17 4x – Div 1
  • Men’s U18 2x – Div 1
  • Men’s Novice 4x – Div 1
  • Men’s U18 1x – Div 1
  • Men’s U17 2X – Div 2, 3 and 4

All in all, a very encouraging set of results.

We look forward to our next regatta: the Spring Regatta at Lake Karapiro on Saturday, 14 November.
