New Zealand National Championships 2019

Lake Ruataniwha, February 2019

“I felt like I was in control – I felt reasonably comfortable. I had another gear to go and sat where I needed to.” ROBBIE MANSON

The picturesque Lake Ruataniwha at the foot of the Southern Alps hosted this year’s National Championships. The alpine lake is the slowest course in New Zealand, icy cold water combined with a slight head current, being the main contributing factors.

Despite being one of the smallest participation regattas on the New Zealand racing calendar, the national championships hold special importance for those chasing the elusive “Red Coat” or selection for international crews.

The Red Coat is awarded to heavyweight premier national champions. It is more difficult to earn a Red Coat than it is to secure selection to wear the silver fern at elite international level. Many accomplished New Zealand rowers have never earned the right to wear one.
