The skies were leaden, but the spirits were high at last Saturday’s 2019 GCRASRA Trophy Regatta held out at Wyaralong Dam and the last official event with Mr Andrew Butler as Head Rowing Coach. The rowers were fiercely determined to bring home the win for Mr Butler, pulling long and strong down the protected course and ultimately coming a fabulous second over-all.

Students, parents and coaches will miss the passion and expertise that Mr Butler has brought to Somerset Rowing for the past 10 years but are looking forward to the time when his daughters are old enough to get out there and show Dad how it’s done! The Rowing Committee would like to thank Mr Butler for everything he has done for the rowing club and wish him all the very best for the future.

We would also like to welcome the new Head Coach for Rowing, Mr Peer Richards, to Somerset Rowing.

Somerset Rowing is also now on Instagram! So if you want exclusive behind the scenes photos and videos of what goes on at training and regattas, follow us at @somersetcollegerowing.

There is now a break in regattas, but not training, until the South Queensland School’s Regatta on the 20 June where we will be back at the beautiful Wyaralong Dam for a two day event.
