Congratulations at NZ Champs

Winner of the Men’s Club Single Tristan Gregory-Hunt celebrates his victory.

Our busy workshop has kept us away from the computer – but either way, we have been wanting to put out a HUGE congratulations and thank you to every athlete that raced or medalled in an SL Racing boat at the 2017 New Zealand Rowing Championships.

It was a busy week for us, and amazing catching up with so many rowers and coaches who swung past our tent. Unfortunately that meant we didn’t get to sit and watch as many races as we wanted, and with all the boats we’ve put on the water since 2010 there’s no way we could keep up with every SLR that came down the course. We do know of at least 15 medals and a real highlight was seeing 3 of the top 4 positions in the Men’s Senior 4- being SL Racing boats. I personally take a huge amount of pride in every boat I have built in my career – and now that those boats have the SL Racing badge on them, seeing how fast they are, and how many people are enjoying rowing them, gives me a real buzz. So THANK YOU for continuing to support us and CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who continues to have success in our boats. Bring on Maadi…
