Two new rowing boats for Cambridge High School Rowing have been “Christened” under their new names, a double boat named Cook, acknowledging the contributions of Cambridge High School rowing, Dean Cook, and a single boat named Cambridge Real Estate Norfolk Downs Development.
Currently in his fifth year on the committee and first year as Chairperson, Dean Cook of Cambridge High School Rowing, started on the committee many years ago as the “assets man” responsible for boat repairs and equipment maintenance.
“This is a vital role that ensures we have boats, oars, coach boats etc all ready to use,” CHS Rowing Teacher in Charge Sarah Monkley said. “Cookie has also been known to step in and help coach on the occasion.”
The new single boat earned its name thanks to sponsorship from Cambridge Real Estate. “CHS Rowing owe a huge thank you to Graham Bann and David Soar,” said Monkley. “This is a wonderful contribution to CHS Rowing and we all very much appreciate their generosity and support.”
The traditional champagne toast marked the official induction of the two new boats on the CHS rowing team.
