The Great Boat Race - the FINAL Race has been held...TAURANGA WINS !

The Great Boat Race - the FINAL Race has been held...TAURANGA WINS !

Tauranga v Cambridge

Tauranga takes out the inaugural Boat Race between Cambridge and Tauranga.  This proves sailors are faster than rowers.  This had nothing to do with the fact that we were assisted by our very own Commadore in command of the fleet.

Thanks Dale for stepping up for the occassion !

The results were close as you can see
