2022 has been a big year so far for St Andrew Boat Club.  With the formal opening of their new boathouse on the canal at Meggetland back in January, the club was well set up for competing at Henley Royal Regatta.  However, a junior boy’s quad in the Fawley and men’s eight in the Thames were not the only crews from the club rowing at the world-famous regatta this year.

On Friday 1st July, a St Andrew Boat Club crew took part in a celebratory row past at Henley Royal Regatta to mark the 175th Anniversary of the club (one year delayed).  The crew, containing representatives of junior, women’s and men’s squads past and present along with those who have made a significant contribution towards the boathouse project through volunteering or donations is listed below:

Aberdeen University Boat Club also marked a significant milestone with a row past on Saturday 2nd July.  Celebrations for their 150th Anniversary in 2020 were subdued due to the pandemic but they made up for it in style rowing the Henley Course with a mixed crew of former members.
