Successful 2021 Canoe Sprint Champs

Paddlers from across the South Island once again enjoyed the facilities at the Meridian Rowing Centre for their annual Sprint Regatta. The competition was held over the weekend of 2-3 October and introduced a slightly different format of racing than previous years. Paddlers raced in divisions of similar ability rather than the traditional age/gender racing. This made for some close, competitive and fun racing.

Canoe Racing NZ Events Manager Karen Simpson-Warren expressed her thanks to South Island Rowing on behalf of the Canoe Racing community for the warm welcome they received and for the facilities that were provided – it was another enjoyable visit to Lake Ruataniwha.

SIR look forward to welcoming everyone back for the regatta again in 2022.
