Awarua Boating Club members gathered at their hub in Bluff last Saturday for the annual meeting and Have-A-Go Day.
Rower Terina Stockwell, of Bluff, said the club had seen the best turnout in years.
“We had people from age 7 to 56 come out and give it a go. The whole of Bluff is trying to get people active, especially young people.”
After struggling to get people signed up for several years, it was great to see about 20 people and lots of supporters get involved on the day, she said.
