The regatta was affected by wind and rain on Sunday and ended up being canned about lunchtime on Sunday after the wind got up and made rowing too difficult.
About half the finals did not get raced.
However, there were some impressive performances by rowers from the southern region.
Columba College duo Siena Snow and Caitlin O’Brien won the women’s club pairs while the Cromwell quad of Stian Languik, Thornton Bickerstaff, Jack Spriggs and Matthew King with cox Kaylee Butler won the intermediate quad sculls.
Dunstan Arm had 40 rowers lining up and had plenty of success.
Kirsty Mahoney, Jas McIntosh, Daendie De Beer and MacKenzie Bryant won the club quad school while the octuple crew of Ellie Shuttleworth, Primrose Johnson, Cat Cuthbert, Abby Phillips, Sydney Key, Arlia Murphy, Rebekah McLeod, Shella Luckhurst and cox Billy Grant also won.
Marezella Debeer and Maycee Wilson won the under-15 double sculls while the two Smiths, Ealson and Erica Morris won the under-19 four.
The Oamaru club finished first and second in the women’s intermediate coxed four. The winning crew was Georgie McCarthy, April and Sophia Linores-Fontona, Amelia Wilkinson and cox Alexis Cuaresma.
Reuben Cook won the men’s club single sculls for Otago Boys’ High School. Sam McAtamney and Marley King-Smith combined to win the under-16 double sculls for Wakatipu and Zara Mackley, Olivia Key, Holly Rogers and Neve Bates, with cox Emily Howick won the under-16 quad sculls.
Pip Horan and Ruby Boyd won the under-16 double sculls for the Wanaka club.
