Rowing exchange to Japan

Rowing exchange to Japan

In September a squad from the St Catherine’s College Boat Club took part in the Oxford Shield Regatta in Tokyo. The event, now in its 56th year, attracts crews from universities and clubs across Japan. The St Catz crew are there following a similar visit by members of the Tsukuba University Rowing Club earlier this year.

The Boat Club President Georgios Ntentas (2014, DPhil Medical Sciences), who organised the exchange, said “Not only is it a brilliant chance to compete internationally, it's also a great chance to create ties with another club and keep training up over summer”

Hopefully the experience will put the club in a strong place for the 2016/17 college rowing season.
