KING’S Ely Boat Club’s newest double scull has been named after one of our long-serving Rowing Coaches, Victor Bridges.

Mr Bridges has been a stalwart member of the school’s Rowing community for 15 years.

Craig Ward, Head of Rowing at King’s Ely, said: “We are honoured to be able to name our new boat after Victor Bridges, who has done so much to develop the Boat Club and the pupils who pass through it.

“After the unveiling, the boat was taken for its first row by Will Buckingham and Conall Comley.

“The new double scull enables our pupils to train and compete at the top level of Junior Rowing and is part of our development plan to continually raise the standard of equipment and performance at the King’s Ely Boat Club.”
