Porirua Goodwill regatta
What a magic day! Last year both the main and backup day for the regatta got blown out. This year we had to postpone and we luckily had a beautiful spring day. Warm, sunny and flat water!
Congratulations to all who competed for the first time. The accumulated points tally, which is calculated using all placings from rowers within a Club, were:
Horowhenua 12, Star BC 52, Porirua 55, Petone 77 and the Wellington Rowing Club at 142!
The trophy was presented by the new Novice Zoe Collins, who also turned 14 years old. Her new club mates sung her happy birthday and there was such a great buzz with the kids. As her Dad, I was so happy to hear her say at home ‘this is the best birthday ever’. Kids love being active, even if it takes a nudge from us parents!
The buzz was also reflective of all the parents and adult rowers who just came down to help out the Club. A couple of families (who don’t want to be named) also pitched in a bought the club a new BBQ! So generous and grateful and we’ll be using this at away regattas!
Of course, a big thanks to the Sponsors for the regatta. A social media post is going up about them.
