Over Labour Weekend the adult squads and St. Pat's went up to Whanganui for a few days of flat water. It was also nice to be able to involve some of the older school girls, who had a lot of fun and learnt a little bit about the way the adults approach the sport. The adults based themselves at Union Boat Club and St. Pat's at Aramaho.
The weather was great, enabling us to keep to our programme and allowing the coaches to firm up their views on combinations for the bigger regattas on the run in to Christmas. Over the course of the weekend it's estimated the crews clocked up over 80km of water time and a few hours of sunburn.
Off the water, once again, it was great to have the whole group coming together for a barbecue and celebrate the end of a successful training camp.
