STC to organize T500 Sprint

Regattas in Sri Lanka have traditionally been rowed over a 1000 meter course and have been limited in general to a two team event. S. Thomas’ College is looking to change this traditional face of rowing by launching the T500 Sprint Championships a 500 meter sprint regatta for coxed fours, double sculls and single sculls.

For the first time in history 13 schools will participate in the inaugural event which will bring together over 150 oarsmen and women.

This Regatta, which will be called the T500 Sprint Championships is to be held on the 14th and 15th of August, at the Colombo Rowing Club. Participants will be between 16 and 19 years of age.

They are dedicated to expand rowing through this event and they plan to take this regatta outstation to areas that have lakes, to train and develop the sport in the coming years as well.

The new warden of S. Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia, Rev. J. C. Puddefoot will be the Chief Guest.
