College to host 22nd SA Schools Boat Race

St Andrew’s College is proud to host the 22nd annual South African Schools Boat Race, which takes place on 9 and 10 December 2022 in Port Alfred. This South African Schools Rowing Union event is sponsored by Standard Bank. It showcases the best of South African Schools rowing as the crews contend against each other as well as against the challenge of the Kowie river.

St Andrew’s College Rowing Club welcomes staff, parents and spectators to watch the racing from the dedicated spectator zone at Port Alfred Ski-Boat Club, right at the race finish line.

Please visit the Boat Race website for more information:  http://sasrurace.co.za/

Competition Details

The regatta will include two events, namely: a Junior Men’s Eights race over 5,4 km and a Junior Women’s Quads race over 4 km. The time trials will be held on the afternoon of Friday 9 December. The finals will be held on Saturday 10 December. These events are open to all schoolboys’ first eight and girls’ first quad crews (excludes current matrics).

Venue

There is a dedicated spectator zone at Port Alfred Ski-Boat Club, right at the race finish line.
