A rowing regatta on the scale of the Cambridge Town Cup is only possible because of the dedicated commitment in time and expertise of a large band of generous and characterful volunteers undertaking an oarsome jigsaw of interlocking tasks. Magic to watch. Photos taken at Cambridge Town Hall Cup on Friday the 28th of January and Saturday the 29th of January 2011 can be found in the day galleries here. Due to a prior family commitment I am unable to attend the regatta today Sunday the 30th.
Diocesan School for Girls (Auckland) rowing squad members view the Lake Karapiro rowing course from above the 1000 metre mark on Maungatautari Road this morning Saturday the 29th of January 2011. The evident camaraderie, team and school spirit these young women exhibit brings much colour (and noise) to the highly disciplined and competitive (not withstanding the matching enthusiasm of their rivals) atmosphere of the Cambridge Town Cup as often fiercely contested battles unfold out on the water. There’s another shot of these young women here – at least I think it’s the same lot! :) The day gallery is here.
