South Island Club Champs Update

South Island Rowing wishes to assure the rowing community that within government guidelines, every effort will be taken to run the South Island Club Championships next weekend.

If New Zealand was to move to red on a 24 or 48 hours notice, the SIR CPF Plan as previously notified would be implemented. The board has approved the early procurement of the required equipment and signage to implement the plan on short notice.

Things to remember about our plan while in a red traffic light scenario: 

  • This remains a vaccine only regatta
  • Zones of 100
  • All competitors and support staff require a lanyard for entry
  • Support staff will be allocated based on participant numbers
  • No spectators
  • Mask’s must be carried and the wearing of them is encouraged
