Corporate 8 Rowing Challenge!

Winstanley Kerridge again this year has participated in the Wairau Rowing corpor8 competition. A core team of nine practiced hard two evenings a week for the first three weeks to come 7th place in the erg (rowing machine) challenge. These skills were then transferred to three weeks of water training ready for Saturday 18th October – race day.

The day promised to be a good day with sunshine and no wind. Armed with plenty of supplies and enthusiasm, the team was ready to beat their erg night placing. However it was not to be and after 3 hard fought races the result was a 9th placing.
Final results for the day were:

1st Giesen
2nd Aerodrome
3rd Omaka Jets
4th Dog Point
5th Marlborough Lines
6th Constellation
7th Treasury Wine
8th Marlborough District Council
9th Winstanley Kerridge

Many thanks goes to Wairau Rowing Club and the other teams involved for a great fun day. We will be sure to be back next year.
