Very well done to everyone racing at Lagan Head of the River Festive Head yesterday, none more so than all of those athletes that got their first chance to represent CGS! Congratulations!
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and we see you on the 27th December for our COBRA Day races.

A fantastic morning celebrating the rowing achievements of two past teachers at the boat naming of our new VIII+ and 2x.

It was great to see such a large turnout for the two fantastic gentlemen being honoured this morning.

Sid and Steen both coached at CAI during the 80s and 90s as well as being full time teachers at the school. These men built a reputation of dedication, knowledge and brilliance all of which took CAIBC through one of its most successful periods in its history. Winning multiple VIII+ and IV+ Irish Championships, Homes Internationals, Henley Royal Regatta appearances and much more.

The delivery of these two racing shells is a culmination of a lot of hard work by our COBRA members as well as outside donors to deliver our largest ever donation of equipment to the rowing club. At a total of £37k, 70% of which came from our members donations.

We would like to thank everyone for attending this morning, despite the awful weather, and making it such a success.

Calling past CAIBC oarsmen who were coached by Sid Grey or Steen Anderson.

COBRA have purchased a new 8+ and 2x for the rowing club and are naming them after these two stalwarts of the club on Saturday 9th December at 11am at the boathouse. Sid and Steen will be doing the naming honours, so this an open invitation for anyone to come along and share the occasion.

These boats were bought primarily through the donations of recent alumni, many of whom don’t even know Sid or Steen. But we still need to buy blades for the boats. If you would like to help, you can make a donation, or perhaps take out annual membership of COBRA, on the "Donate" or "Join" pages of our website https://cobrarowing.co.uk/
If you can’t make it to the boat naming, feel free to leave a comment for Sid or Steen.

Please pass on this notice to anyone else you know who had an involvement with Sid or Steen.

A significant moment in history for Ireland as well as Coleraine Academical Institution.
