Read below for summaries of the affiliated schools Maadi Cup ventures!


Maadi has come and gone and we can look back on a successful championships. We improved on our performances from the North Island  Champs and the crews achieved some excellent racing in the heats, quarter finals, semi finals and finals.

Maadi is the culmination of a lot of work by a lot of people – we owe a huge debt of gratitude to our parents who have supported us, financed us and looked after us at the regattas. Thanks to Christina, Helen, Nicola and Hepi for all you did for us in Twizel. And thanks to Bruce who got our gear there and back and who worked hard to make sure our boats were in the best condition for racing.

There were 14 rowers in our squad who made it through to four A Finals and one B final with the following results:
4th           Girls Under 17 Double Sculls – Bailee Waller, Tauhi Lopeti
5th           Girls Under 17 Quad Sculls –        Bailee Waller, Tauhi Lopeti, Ma’u Isileli-Foo’u, Georgia Malins, Jacinta Taiapa
7th           Girls Under 17 Novice Double Sculls – MaCauley Newson, Phoebe Kempton
8th           Girls Under 16 Quad Sculls – Meg Dempsey, Zoe Turton, Evie Brake, Ma’u Isileli-Foo’u, Jacinta Taiapa
7th           Girls Under 18 Lightweight Double Sculls – Olivia Waller, Bryni Waldron-Lemon
