2023/2024 Regatta Season Calendar (draft)
Funds raised for rowing clubs impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle
"I would like to express my thanks for the overwhelming generosity of our rowing Whanau. Over the weekend of the AON Junior Regatta our rowing family gave $5469-70 towards Hawkes Bay and Gisborne Rowing Clubs who have been severely impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle. I was really humbled by the way everyone came together to support those affected. The funds will be distributed equally. In addition, Mark Weatherall from Rowing New Zealand will take a dozen ergs to Gisborne this week.
St Georges from Auckland gave an additional $4,500 to support the afore mentioned clubs. St Georges are commencing a Māori and Pacifica Rowing program in April as well as supporting Macleans College and Glendowie School. They also have a well-developed Masters Programme. We are very grateful to them for their generosity." Vikki Maclean, KRI Board Member
