Sunday morning saw the Motorway "Marathon" held for the 2nd year running. Readers from out of Wellington may wonder what the significance of that is - it's difficult finding a day to row a 7.6km race on Wellington harbour.
The Wellington College crew managed to defend the Bishop Owen Oar by winning the schools' eights race. In the Mothes Shield (the club fours/quads race), the race organisers were the ultimate winners of the day, as there were no prognostics calculated. This meant that a men's coxless quad was almost guaranteed victory, and this was the case with Petone taking the shield.
Using the times provided by rowit.co.nz and the Sykes on-line prognostic calculator, Wellington College, rowing as Star 1 have the right to complain.
Here are the Mothes Shield results (in order of prognostic percentage)
These numbers have been updated due to the time keepers knocking 4 mins off everyone's time. Prognostics still low overall, but better.
