KSCBC & Pilgrim Henley Marquee Lunch
150th Anniversary Celebrations
2012 saw the celebration of 150 years of rowing at Kin's Canterbury. On Saturday 23rd June the Headmaster hosted a splendid boat club dinner at Canterbury, attended by staff, pupils, past and present, parents and friends. This was preceded by rowing at Westbere, with two eights in preparation for the celebrations at Henley.
At Henley on Saturday 30th June two eights composed of OKS and current boat club members rowed over the course, in the tea interval, celebrating the club's many achievements, including Olympians, Internationals, Henley winners and the appearance of King's in five Princess Elizabeth finals.
Michael Dover is publishing a book recording the club's history. This beautiful publication gives a fascinating insite, from the early days of rowing at Canterbury to the present.
