2001 Regatta Results
April 14th - New Zealand Universities Rowing Champs, Dunedin
The 2001 NZU Rowing Champs were held on a sunny (and cold) Dunedin day at Lake Waihola. The weather wasn't kind to us, with the wind coming up in the middle of the day, causing a couple of hours delay in the middle of the programme. In the end we ran out of light and the final race, the mens championship four, was racing on the Sunday morning.

Huge thanks to the Otago Rowing Association for running a very smooth regatta, and to Christie Munro and Glen Sinclair for organising everything. Thanks also to all the clubs which kindly lend boats to crews from out of town, often at no cost.

Lastly, thanks to all the competitors who came along and raced hard, especially those who endured long bus journeys to get there. Hopefully you all had a good time.

July 28 - New Zealand Tertiary Eights, Hamilton
Due to fog on the river, the start of the regatta was delayed, but eventually racing got underway in the swift currents of the Waikato River.

The overall winner of the regatta was University of Waikato Boat Club.

All the races were against the current, finishing in front of the Hamilton Rowing Club. The open head races were over a 4.4km course (against the current), with the novice races over a shorter distance and the mixed crew sprint racing held over 500 metres. Following the racing on the river, we adjourned to a sponsor's pub for the traditional off-water boat racing. The academy mens crew who joined us for the festivities remained unbeaten throughout, though with all the cheating going on it was hard to declare a winner.
