A friendly rivalry between the North and South brought together staff and students on the kanamaluka/Tamar River for the Vice-Chancellor’s Rowing Challenge on Sunday. The first Vice-Chancellor’s Challenge was held in 1998.
Northern staff, led by Vice-Chancellor Rufus Black, competed across a 4km long distance course against two Southern teams: one crewed by staff and the other by students. In picturesque conditions, the Northern Team were first over the line by 500m and over 2mins, retaining their winning title for a fourth consecutive time.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Rufus Black said the Northern win was a strong display of teamwork bringing together staff from multiple Colleges and Divisions.
“We all feel extremely fortunate in these times to be able to plan and participate in events like this as a University. Even with the early mornings, with thick fog on the river, it’s been worth every minute,”
Thank you to everyone who made the day so enjoyable and congratulations to the Northern Team on their fabulous victory.
