Invitations for eights

A few places are still left for those wanting to take part in this year's Wairau Rowing Club's Corporate Eights Rowing Challenge.

Organising spokeswoman Sharon Williamson said that anyone keen on learning to row in a fun environment can join in. If your workplace is not big enough to get a full team of rowers, you can combine with others to make an eight.

Sponsored by Window Treatments, rowers train as an eight each week on and off the water under the guidance of experienced coaches.

A course of 12 lessons begins on August 30 leading through to the regatta on October 16. For entry details contact Sharon Williamson on or phone 0275836964.
