South Island Rowing (SIR) are excited to be hosting a new regatta for Masters, to be held at Lake Ruataniwha on October 17th-18th. The event programme is to follow that of the cancelled New Zealand Masters Champs.

Following the cancellation the NZ Masters Championships on August 25th and the South Island Masters scheduled for May 30/31st at Lake Hood, SIR have been working with our member Associations to find ways for regattas to be safely run under Covid-19 Alert Level 2. We are extremely lucky to have a facility at Lake Ruataniwha which provides adequate space to implement protocols which meet the Level 2 Government requirements and ensure the safety of our competitors, officials and volunteers.

We look forward to finally seeing the Masters race, down here in Twizel!
