Promising Start to Rowing Season

October 28, 2015 at 1:27 PM

Wet weather greeted the College rowers for the first regatta of the 2015/2016 season at Lake Pupuke. Saint Kentigern was well represented with crews entered in a large number of the events.

Racing at Lake Pupuke is a short-course sprint format which makes for great viewing and close racing. The events give the squads opportunities to try different combinations in boats to see how fast they are in pressure racing situations which form part of the selection process throughout the season.

Notable results from both boys and girls crews were:


U18 Eight Final – 1st

U17 Eight – 1st

U17 Four 1st

U18 Double Sculls – 2nd

Club Eight – 2nd


U18 Four – 1st

U17 Four – 3rd

U16 Quad – 3rd

The rowing club now moves onto a four-week training stretch before the next regatta, with the focus on long-distance rows with a technique focus and selection of crews for upcoming regattas.
