Boat Race 2016- Strenue to King Edward 1st 8 Crew
 
Featured Article
The Annual Schools’ Boat Race will take place on the Kowie River in Port Alfred on the 9th and 10th of December this year. Heats will be raced on the 9th with the finals taking place on the 10th.

MIC Mr Trevor Dedlow gives us a 'race preview' on Boat Race 2016:

Our King Edward Boat Race crew will leave for Port Alfred on Tuesday 6th December in order to spend some time on the river to familiarise themselves with conditions.

Boat Race requires a combination of power and endurance coupled with an exceptional technical expertise. Athletes will be subject to physical fatigue as well as extreme psychological pressure. Conditions are unpredictable and can change during the course of the race.
Our boys have been training hard during the examination period and will be leaving for a final preparation camp at the Vaal River on the 28th of November. Balancing their academic program and final exams against the training requirement has been a challenge that has been well met by our boys.
This year we will be seen as one of the possible favourites after our recent win at the Gauteng Championship’s. Boat Race is a different type of event however, being raced over 5.9km’s as opposed to the championship distance of 2 km’s. There will be strong competition from the coastal areas as well as from one or two local boats.

The 2016 crew will be coxed by club captain, Ntsako Mphahlani, who returns to the Kowie for his second race. After an unbeaten start to the season, he is upbeat about the crew’s chances and hopes to use the experience he gained last year to steer the King Edward boat into an ‘A’ final.

Crew: Ntsako Mphahlani (cox); Cameron Menton (stroke); Nic Nepgen; Christopher Baxter; Liam Smit; Dean Geldhoff; Damien Bonhage-Koen; Brandon Bester and Keegan Reynolds. Spare men: Vincent Jackson and Cameron Bryce.

STRENUE School- do your best, row with passion and know we are cheering you on all the way!

Go School.
