October 2012 - April 2013
Environment Canterbury gives notice under its Navigation Safety Bylaws 2010 that powered craft will not be allowed on Lake Ruataniwha on all or part of the Rowing Regatta Days set out below, apart from December 16th and March 2nd and 3rd 2013. Due to the Bylaw rules, on these days the Lake will remain open for use by other craft.
South Island Rowing Incorporated (SIRI) is authorised to allow powered craft on the lake for periods before the day’s rowing events commence and after they conclude.
SIRI may substitute an additional day as a Rowing Regatta Day if weather conditions cause the cancellation of rowing events on a Rowing Regatta Day.
Practice Days for Rowing Regattas will also occur on the days before Regatta Days. Powered craft are not excluded on such days, but skippers are requested to take care that vessel wakes do not create unnecessary danger or risk to rowers.
