Legion Regatta May 2022 report

Regatta Report from the President

We had a gloriously successful Legion regatta on May 14th at Karapiro. There were over 230 athletes attending and the weather gods were kind giving us light winds and a mostly sunny day. Full results.

The team used the masters handicapping system applied at the start for the first time with some success – there were a lot of very close finishes as a result. We would love to get feedback from you about wether you found this a good innovation.

After racing our traditional sausage sizzle with a free drink was very well attended and Mahe Drysdale drew 30 winners out of the hat for spot prizes generously donated by SL Racing, Croker NZ, Get More KitJuice Plus, Rowing Tools, The Crew Room, Faster Masters Rowing, and Buoy Line.

Also on site were the World Rowing Masters Championships 2023 – for more information see the article below – it would be great to send a strong New Zealand contingent to race there.
