Cancellation of April Legion Masters Regatta

17th March 2020


Cancellation of April Legion Masters Regatta

The Legion of Rowers Committee wish to advise that, in the best interests of the health and safety of both athletes and officials, as well as coaches and spectators, we have reluctantly agreed to cancel our Masters Regatta, scheduled for Lake Karapiro, on Sunday 26th April.

Whereas our proposed regatta may have managed to stay under  the New Zealand Government’s cut-off point of under 500 for massed gatherings during this uncertain period of Corona Virus outbreaks, we felt it best to avoid any possibility of spreading the infection any further.

Our Committee would like to sincerely thank all clubs who were planning to attend, and who have supported our April Masters regatta in the past.  Although this regatta will not happen, we would like to remind you all of the two forthcoming Masters Regattas

  • Legion North Island Championship Regatta, Saturday 29th August 2020 and
  • NZ Masters Championships Regatta Sat/Sun 12th & 13th September 2020

Paula Storey, Legion Secretary


UPDATE 18/03/2020 


As an organisation we have to consider the welfare of our Members and Regatta Participants in relation to the current Coronavirus Pandemic. 

  1. 26th April 2020 – This is the main LEGION MASTERS REGATTA. 
  2. 29th August 2020 – The North Island Masters Regatta where you get a chance to flex your muscles and eye up the competition for  the upcoming Rowing NZ Masters Championship Regatta in September. This regatta will be held on the 1000m, laned course at Karapiro.
