Rowing World Comes to Waikato

NZ has secured the hosting rights for the 2010 World Rowing Championships. The event will be held at Lake Karapiro in Cambridge, Waikato, with Hamilton acting as the official host city. Lake Karapiro previously hosted the championships in 1978. According to Rowing NZ CEO Craig Ross, the event is expected to inject more than $105 million into the NZ economy. “It’s the biggest thing for rowing – for past rowers and for present rowers,” says world champ Caroline Evers-Swindell.
