CURE BOATING CLUB (est. 1868)
If you are an adult rower or have rowed previously and are
interested in getting back on the water, ask about our
RE-GO ROW opportunity at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to take up rowing, look out for our HAVE A GO and LEARN TO ROW modules starting in September 2022.
The Cure Boating Club is situated in Kaiapoi within the Waimakariri District of North Canterbury. The club rooms and boat shed are based 'riverside' on Raven Quay, downstream from the Williams Street Bridge in the centre of town and overlooks the beautiful Kaiapoi River.
We have been training and holding rowing events on the Kaiapoi and Waimakariri Rivers since 1868.
The Boating Club was established to "cure" the fierce rivalry between professional Kaiapoi river rowing crews that used to meet for high profile races on the Waimakariri and Kaiapoi rivers in the early 1860's.
The Cure Boating Club has a competitive senior rowing squad, a competitive master's membership and local high schools rowing programme in conjunction with Rangiora High, Kaiapoi High and we welcome other High School Students who live in the area.
Membership mainly comes from the North Canterbury region and the surrounding towns of Rangiora and Kaiapoi.
SINCERE thanks to all those who have contributed to our rebuild following the 2010/2011 Canterbury Earthquakes.
Special mention goes to the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust (CEAT) and the Waimakariri District Council.
We're nearly there after a mammoth effort over an extended period.
