Crews Ready for Fridays Semi Finals

22 Mar

Bad weather continued today making conditions impossible for rowing with racing delayed until late this afternoon and only three crews getting afloat. The majority of events have now moved to Friday instead.

On Wednesday evening in choppy conditions, Sammy Harry and Sophie Fenn had one of their best doubles races of the season to finish 4th in their repecharge of the Under 16 doubles making it through to the E final today where they were third.

Quinn Curtis in another close race came 5th in the quarter final of the Under 16 sinles and will now row tomorrow in the C Final. A terrific result in his first year of single sculling.

Finally the girls U17 quad of Rata, Maggie, Greer and Peta coxed by Patrick  were 2nd in the quarter final taking them through  to the semis with a good chance of getting to the A final.

We now have nine crews racing tomorrow in Semis and C Finals as follows:

8.08 Sam U17 1x Semi

9.36 Rata U16 1x Semi

10.00 Rata, Maggie, Greer, Peta and Patrick  U 17 4x  Semi

15.12 Quinn U 16 1x C Final




Ten Crews through to Thursdays Racing

21 Mar
Day three was a cloudy, drizzly day and the water was lovely and flat with no wind, so good conditions for racing . Full results can be seen here
In The Under 18 doubles Greer Porter and Macy Toovey got knocked out in their repecharge despite a good effort. Macy also rowed well in her U18 single repecharge and finished 6th.
Sam Pearce and Quinn Curtis put in a monster finish to come 2nd in a time of 7.24 after one of the favourites, Otago Boys, in the U17 double repecharge, so they’re now through to the semi-final on Thursday at 12.10.
In the repecharge of the boys under 16 double, Quinn and Owen Lea rowed a really exciting race coming a very close third to miss out on the semi-finals by just a bow ball. This took them to the E final where they were 3rd.
In the quarter finals scheduled later Sam was 4th in the U17 single to qualify for the semis on Thursday morning at 9.38 and was 5th in the U18 singles, qualifying for the C final on Thursday afternoon at 14.06.
The girls maintained their composure in the singles with Rata Horan 2nd in her quarter final of the U16 single and Peta McKay finishing 3rd  in the Under 17 single, both qualifying for the semis on Thursday morning . Maggie Stiven just missed out on the semi’s coming 5th and will race the C Final tomorrow morning as well.
Peta and Maggie also raced in the quarter finals of the under 17 doubles and were 5th which takes them through to the C Final on Thursday as well.
Sammy Harry and Sophie Fenn had a tough repecharge in the girls Under 16 2x with only the winner going through to the Semis and the rest to the E finals. They had a great race coming 4th and will be one of the first Crews racing tomorrow morning in the E Final.
Rata, Peta, Maggie and Greer Porter coxed by Patrick Hartley will also race in the quarter finals of the the Girls U 17 quads first thing tomorrow followed shortly after by Quinn in the quarter final of the boys Under 16 single.
Thursday is looking to be one of the busiest days with 9 crews racing. For the schedule of race times click here

Maadi Day Two

20 Mar

More good results from The Mount Aspiring Crews at day two of the regatta. The wather conditions started to deteriorate mid day causing high winds to put the regatta on hold but the crews battled well against the conditions.

Peta McKay and Maggie Stiven had an awesome race in the Under 17 2x and placed 2nd taking them through to the quarter finals tomorrow.
The U16 double of Sammy Harry and Sophie Fenn came in 7th and made it through to the repecharge as well.
Quinn Curtis had a cracker of a race and placed 2nd in his singles – the wind came up during those singles so times got slower and slower.
Owen Lea had a tough singles race and rowed well with another PB time but was knocked out as 7th in his heat. His heat looked to be the fastest of the day so it was a real shame for him not to go through to the next round.
So wednesday and thursday are looking quite busy for our crews as they head out for more repecharges and quarter finals.
