Waitara is a town more associated with rugby league luminaries such as Howie Tamati and Tony Kemp than with elite rowing, but the Clifton Rowing Club is celebrating its best-ever performance at the national championships.

Taranaki rowers secured four gold and two bronze medals at Lake Karapiro to finish fourth overall.

Our Taranaki Whanganui reporter Robin Martin visited Clifton to see what makes it tick.
