North Island Rowing Championships 2011

North Island Rowing Champs 2011 Lake Karapiro

I went to watch my cousin Alice row for Hawkes Bay (Women’s Novice Eight – Hawkes Bay 2) at the North Island Rowing Championships 2011 at Lake Karapiro today the 15th of January 2011 and passed the time by covering the later medals ceremonies. So, I think I have everything from event 117 (?) – 133 (MPrem 8+)put me right if I have this wrong. In what was a great regatta for Hawkes Bay the Women’s Novice Eight – Hawkes Bay 2 won silver. Cool!

In the foreground the Lake Karapiro WRCH2010 boat park off water pontoons. Beyond the Don Rowlands Centre and the glass of the finish tower against the grandstand – apparently the largest temporary stand to be built in New Zealand – and yes it is huge. Beyond that the shell of the concert stage where Ophop will perform tomorrow afternoon – after the opening ceremony. And beyond again, above the trees, the northern slopes of Maungatautari.
