What’s on Cambridge New Zealand | welcome the Lithuanian team

As you know we have adopted Lithuania as part of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce promotion for the rowing, and some of you may have noticed the rather large flag outside my office this week. You are all invited to join me to welcome the Lithuanian rower and team. Please feel free to spread the word around. Parishioners – a plate for morning tea would be appreciated. This morning Friday 5 November at 10:00am. Look forward to seeing you.

DAY 1: SUNDAY 31 October 2010

RACING DELAYED ON OPENING DAY

Racing on the opening day of the 2010 World Rowing Championships has been delayed.

Racing started, as scheduled, at 10.05am with the heats of the lightweight men’s pairs but after the start of the sixth race, international rowing federation officials took the decision to suspend racing as the increasing wind made conditions unrowable.

Racing is scheduled to restart at 4.00pm. FISA officials will meet at 3.00pm to review the wind conditions and confirm the 4.00pm start.

The rescheduled programme will begin with the first heat of the lightweight men’s double sculls.

The Mighty River Domain will remain open all day and the off the water entertainment planned for after racing will now be brought forward to entertain spectators during the delay.

The first race of the 2010 World Rowing Championships was won by the host nation’s Graham Oberlin-Brown and James Lassche, who qualified direct for Friday’s medal final.

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.
