Swedish Exchange

Thanks to the tireless efforts of Stefan Graf, twelve Swedish teenagers, all keen competitive rowers, came to visit Cambridge and train with Rob Roy Boat Club during the first week of April. Six lads and six lassies from Swedish International Boarding School in Gränna, along with their teacher and coach, Greg Kewley, plus two coxes/coaches arrived to enjoy a full programme of activities. These included a college tour, social gatherings and pub meals as well as a trip to London to watch

Cambridge win the boat race. Stefan arranged accommodation, bicycle rental and plenty of outings. Most of the youths had already done (some several times) the Rhein-Marathon in Dusseldorf, Germany.
