St Peter’s School’s junior rowers have claimed the Muudi Cup for the tenth year in a row.

The annual regatta is held between St Peter’s, Hauraki Plains College and Takapuna Grammar on the very muddy and tidal Piako River, competing against each other on the erg for 20 minutes, then on the water in doubles, quads and this year, eights.

Despite close racing throughout the day St Peter’s secured the win with 74 points over Takapuna with 60 and Hauraki with 49.

It was a fantastic effort especially considering the Year 9 rowers were doing doubles for the first time, with some rather erratic steering by one boys double.
