Aon Maadi Cup - Two Events Oversubscribed

12 March 2019 1:05pm

Entries have closed for this years Aon Maadi Cup regatta with two events exceeding the maximum of 64 entries. The events are the Boys under 17 Single Scull and the Girls under 17 Single Scull. Karapiro Rowing would appreciate any early scratchings for these events.

There are several options available going ahead. 1 - Run Time Trials for these events; not a favoured option. 2 - Remove all number 2 crews from these events. This would not stop anyone attending Maadi Cup as there are no number 2 crews for which this would have been their sole race, but it would mean that there would be a number of crews who would now only have one race at Maadi Cup. 3 - Modify the progression system to accomodate 72 crews for this year. This is the preferred option at this stage as the regatta is generally slightly smaller than previous regattas and so could accomodate the three extra races that would be generated. This Option has to be approved by the schools committee and an application has been made to them.

Karapiro Boat Park Allocations

13 February 2019 8:09am

Karapiro Rowing Inc has a policy of allocating trailer boat parking sites to each competing school or schools (where there are more than 1 schools rowing skiffs on a particular trailer). Only one trailer from each school or group of schools will be allocated a trailer parking spot within the actual boat park.

We have limited parking within the domain and the Don Rowlands car park - currently 37 trailer parking spaces. With the removal of the road in the boat park beside Cambridge RC we have lost 2 trailer parking spaces within the Domain until the grass recovers. If we have dry weather we can potentially use these two spaces for Maadi Cup. Therefore trailers will be allocated parking sites in Judd Lane, Carpark 2 and possibly the upper camp ground.

In allocating trailer spots a couple of points to note are:

  • The size of trailers has an impact of where they can possibly be parked within the domain.
  • Schools who have shown a willingness to use their trailers to store boats during regattas tend to be treated more favourably than schools who don't follow this practice. Karpiro Rowing appreciates that some trailer designs do not facilitate boat storage on trailers but we need to see more of an effort by these schools to use their trailers for boat storage. We have photos of all trailers at 2017 Maadi Cup who did not store boats on their trailers.

Our aim is to be fair to all schools attending Maadi but SI schools will share parking outside the boat park. If a school was inside the domain and Don Rowlands boat parking areas last Maadi Cup you may well be parked outside these areas at the 2019 Maadi Cup in the interests of equity between competing schools.

Each trailer park is marked. Your trailer tow ball needs to be directly over the middle of your allocated boat park number and your trailer needs to be straight. If Terry is not around to park your trailer then you should call him if you are uncertain where to park. You will be asked to move your trailer if it is parked in the wrong position. Well parked trailers will optimise the space schools have to work with around their trailers.

Any queries concerning your boat park allocation should be directed to Terry Tidbury 027 4744 196.
