Sculling on the Kowie River (December)

Nemato Rowing Club made a new step forward. A little bit scary at first; now it is exiting. Rowing in single scull on the Kowie River. Here are rowers on their way to the start of Boat Race, 6.2km up the river.

In the eight with Germiston (2-3 December 2005)

Schools Boat Race in Port Alfred is the big rowing event for schools in South Africa. The rowers from Nemato Rowing Club are not experienced enough to participate in the race. Germiston High School invited Nemato to have two training sessions with them in the eight. First time in an eight and first time sweep oar rowing (one blade per rower). Very quick learners! Nice experience! The second session was filmed for TV.

Rhodes-Nemato Day (3rd September 2005)

Rhodes University organised a Rhodes/Nemato Day on Saturday 3rd September. The day program: a warm up for everybody with running and stretching, a rowing session by the students watched by the Nemato kids in motor boats, the students coaching the kids on ergos (rowing machines) and a small braai at Centenary Park. It was a nice introduction to rowing.
