Corporate Challenge 2017

It has been another successful year for the Wellington Rowing Club Corporate Challenge. We had a strong showing of teams ranging from Commerce Commission, Opus and RCP. This year training on water proved difficult with the wellington weather playing havoc with many of the coaches water plans. But on the day of racing it was a clear blue wellington day. The type of days that rowers and supporters dream of.

The corporate challenge is split into two sections the indoor erg challenge and the on water regatta. The erg challenge was held upstairs from the rowing club and over a 2000m distance. There was a strong showing from all sides for the three trophies. The overall winners for the erg challenge were:

Opus – Women

Commerce Commission – Men

Commerce Commission – Mixed

In the on water section of the corporate challenge there were some close battles and some close competition. Overall the winners were:

OMV – Men

Commerce Commission – Women

Commerce Commission – Mixed

Overall challenge winners – OMV

Congratulations to all the athletes that competed in the corporate challenge. Thank you to all the coaches and supporters as well as the work places that created such a fun event. Bring on corporate challenge 2018.
