DSG Rowers participate in the Settlers Regatta

This weekend the rowers took part in an extremely windy Settlers Regatta, which made conditions very challenging. However the rowers remained focused and ended with outstanding results.

In the Open Women’s A Quad, DSG won the event, beating Clarendon Girls from East London in the final.

Unfortunately a number of the individual skulls were cancelled due to the high winds but Caitlin Little did complete her race in the Open Women’s University category and finished 2nd by the narrowest of margins.

DSG then joined with Rhodes University to enter a composite crew into the Open Women’s 8, and they won this event.
