Boat Race 2017

The King Edward first eight crew will again be travelling to Port Alfred to race at the annual Schools’ Boat Race in December.

The race, over 5.9km’s, is viewed as one of the premier events on the Schools’ Rowing Calendar and King Edward will be returning as reigning champions. Last year’s win will allow the crew to start first in the time trial on Friday 8th December and this should hopefully provide an advantage which may assist in securing a decent final on Saturday 9th December.

The crew has been training hard during the examination period and will be moving down to the Vaal River for an extended preparation camp prior to departure for Port Alfred on December 5th.

Spirits are high in the squad with six members of last year’s crew returning to the Kowie this year. The boys are quite aware of the added pressure that last year’s victory places on them this year and expect to face intense competition at the event. The first eight win at Gauteng Champs has gone some way to buoying confidence in the boat but the crew is taking nothing for granted.

Club Captain, Damien Bonhage-Koen returns for the race, together with Christopher Baxter, Nic Nepgen, Dean Geldhof, Cameron Menton and Brandon Bester. The new squad members, Benjamin Dyke, Marc Durandt and Liam Karovsky, have gained some valuable experience in the boat already this season and will add good value to the crew.

Tait McJarrow, the crew cox, will be making his first appearance at Boat Race but is a seasoned campaigner and an integral part of the crew’s success to date. In what is in essence a coxe’s race, Tait will have an important role to play over the two days of racing.

We wish the crew all the best in their endeavour to defend their title.
