Challenge participants completed an additional 960 kilometres through the course of this week from the 12th to 15th May, bringing the total distance covered to 1497km. This progress took us through Lesotho, taking in the Katse Dam where OA Jake Green took part in a training camp with the SA National Rowing team in March this year, just after addressing the College rowers on the eve of SA Champs.
SuperSport recently featured Jake (Merriman 2012), Head Coach Roger Barrow (Espin 1993) and the rest of the team during their training camp (https://supersport.com/general/video/1147874…).
From there, our journey north took us past Roodeplaat Dam, the venue for many past successes for St Andrew’s rowing, this year is no exception with some outstanding performances across the club at the South African Schools Championships.
Watch out for details of the first Inter-House Challenge which will take place next week!
