Not only is FISA’s web site offering results from the World Rowing Championships in New Zealand, the organisation is also presenting video clips on their ‘World Rowing Video Channel’. To view the clips on the channel, please click here.
It seems, according to one video clip from yesterday, that thousands of fans of the ‘Cambridge Melbourne Cup Day’ had gathered at Lake Karapiro to watch the rowing races and also the horse racing later in the day (probably on television, I guess). The video clip is showing a lot of ladies in fancy hats. This reminds me that at the first international rowing regatta in Sweden, held on 14 July 1868 in Helsingborg, the regatta ended with horse racing.
Maybe this is not a bad combination, Boats and Horses!
