Spring Regatta Changes

27 September 2016 at 9:13am

This year the Spring Regatta will be raced on the new 1000m course instead of the traditional 2000m course as been the case in the past. The new 1000m course offers some advantages particularly at this time of year. November is notorius for winds the new course is considerably more sheltered than the 2000m course. The decision has been supported by requests from Clubs and Schools for a shorter race distance for athletes at the start of the season as they find that three 2000m races are difficult. The new race distance will be reviewed after the regatta and a decision made as to whether 1000m will be retained for next year or a return to the traditional 2000m.

Karapiro Rowing Annual General Meeting

17 August2016 at 10:30 am

Karapiro Rowing held it's Annual General Meeting on Sunday 14 August. Most member associations were present with the exception of the Auckland Secondary Schools Association and the Wanganui Rowing Association - neither of them tendering an apology. James Boyce was appointed to the Board after the vacancy left by the resignation of Don Craig.

This year, a certain number of fees were increased as Karapiro Rowing has not increased it's regatta fees since 2008. The most notable of the changes would be the new penalty for crews who fail to appear at the start which is now $60 + GST and the increase in the Non-progression fee which has been raised to $150 + GST.

Karapiro Club Regatta returns to a Two Day Event

24 June 2016 at 1:46 pm

This season sees the Karapiro Club Regatta return to being a two day regatta as it was for a number of years. As a result of information received last year from a survey of all rowing coaches who attended KRI regattas, the majority wanted more traditional racing formats at this time of the season and preferably over two days instead of one. This being the case, KRI are returning to a traditional program, raced over eight lanes with heats and finals. Depending on what entry numbers are like when entries close as to how many petite finals will be offered. The regatta will cater for both club and school rowing programs.
