This year’s regatta, held on Lake Karapiro, attracted a record 2300 entrants.
21 King’s rowers and two coxswains combined to form 22 crews to contest 13 of the 52 events on the programme.
The regatta ran for six days, with heats on Monday and Tuesday, quarter-finals on the Wednesday, semi-finals on the Thursday and finals on the Friday and Saturday.
At the conclusion of Thursday’s semi-finals, our rowers had reached eleven A finals, three B finals.
Head of Rowing Nick Lloyd noted this was the best Maadi performance by the King’s Rowing Club in recent memory.
"It certainly sets a high benchmark for next year and beyond,” he says.
At the conclusion of the regatta, James Hall and Daniel Williamson were invited to trial for representative honours in the New Zealand Junior team, whilst Sam Cummins, Matt Caro, Harrison Elliott and Zandi Sutcliffe were invited to trial for the North Island Junior Team.
Well done to all our rowers.
