Host school wins two races at Shawnigan’s annual regatta

Nearly 700 athletes from 23 clubs and schools took to the water last weekend for Shawnigan Lake School’s annual regatta.

"The regatta went really well," Shawnigan head of rowing Tim Coy said. "The weather was perfect, and the whole thing ran smoothly without delays."

The host school won two races: the junior A men’s coxed four and the junior C girls double.

Vic City Rowing Club won both the men’s and women’s junior A eights, arguably the most prestigious events of the regatta.

Elliot Rogers of Brentwood College School won the junior A men’s single, while Stephanie Grauer of Crofton House won the junior A women’s single.
