Tell us what you think about the proposed rowing base
After the earthquakes, the St Margarets Rowing Club and the Union Rowing Club set up temporary training facilities at Murphy Park in Kaiapoi. Currently the clubs have storage sheds at the southern end of the park and launch at a ‘beach’ area near the Kaiapoi Croquet Club.
There are issues with the current set up. There is not enough room to easily to turn and back a car and trailer, and the beach launching area is difficult to use and can cause damage to boats. The storage sheds are also affected by flooding.
Both clubs have confirmed that they wish to continue to use the Kaiapoi River for training and would like to have a more permanent base to launch and store their boats.
