Rowing team brings home medals A small team of Horowhenua Masters rowers returned home with a huge medal haul from the national competition at Lake Ruataniwha in Twizel at the weekend. Between them Andrew Bealing, Bruce Tate and Kevin Horan recorded 10 gold, 11 silver and four bronze medals in the various events competing against more than 300 other rowers aged between 26 and 83 at the two-day regatta. Such was their success, they are now looking to compete at the Australian Masters Champs in April 2020 on Lake Barrington. They were joined in some events by Whanganui rower Martin Bridger. There were 36 clubs from New Zealand competing, and a visiting team from Australia. Competition was strong as several rowers were former NZ elite representatives, including World and Olympic medalists. Racing was ‘average aged’, so boats were put in the division of the average age of the crew rowing.
The Horowhenua Masters Rowing Club team could be off to Australia.
