- VILL#1, was gold, in event 6 (G U17 2X)
- CHCO#1, was gold, in event 17 (B U16 4+)
To fill the gap left by the lightweight doubles there will be exhibition events for Novice Quadruples.
note: if needed, gaps will be left in the schedule where the lightweight fours events would have raced.
The New Zealand Secondary Sports Council de-sanctioned lightweight rowing (see announcement here: www.nzsssc.org.nz). Consequently the lightweight fours and doubles events will not be accepting entries.
The New Zealand Secondary Sports Council have declared that they will not be sanctioning the lightweight events at any of the secondary school sports events they govern. For rowing that is the New Zealand, North and South Island Secondary School Rowing Championships. See release of this decision here - www.nzsssc.org.nz/newsarticle/47799
