Bringing rowing to South African children
Fantastic News....Our Donated Bow Loader 4+ arrived safely in South Africa and is already being put to good use.
Kate, who used to cox at Bewl in the 1990s, is the mastermind behind this venture.
She sent us the following report:
"Two weeks ago we had a regatta in Port Elizabeth that our location kids took part in and the Bewl Boat was officially used for the 1st time. It was largely fixed (it doesn’t help that part has to be chopped off to fit in the container & then put on again when it arrives). They did really well and were right up there with the private schools (much to their chagrin). We have Eastern Cape Champs at the end of the month. I’ll send you more pics then. Fund raising continues as we plan to get some quad riggers for it so that it is available to more people to use".
