Lady Margaret School Vs. Burlington Danes Academy
LMS and BDA made the most of the balmy October conditions to take each other on in the latest round of our School fixtures. Both schools have been putting their students through the Learn to Row courses since the start of the school year and the students revelled in the opportunity to put everything they'd learnt into practice on the night.
The crews managed to complete four races before it got too dark and fittingly each school took him home two wins, splitting the honours. School Manager, Meghann Jackson, said, "This is some of the best quality racing we've seen so far this year. There is a real momentum building behind these schools as they look to enter their first regattas in 2019."
Both Schools are part of the Future Blues program, a partnerhsip between FRBC and The Boat Race Company which aims to help every one of the 52 schools that border the Boat Race Championship Course get onto the river and into a rowing boat.
