The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1948
A limited group of members have been taking part in regattas consistently during the season, and among these, successes were achieved by Graham Honore, Don McLeod (at Picton, Wellington and Port Chalmers) and Stan Gillen (at Christchurch).
The training of novice oarsmen was undertaken with seriousness, and several were included in the team taking part in the Tournament. The position of the crews there was disappointing, due above all to the lack of capable oarsmen, and it is evident that to achieve better success in this event in future,page 45
a large increase in our membership is required.
A new eight-oared skiff has been purchased and will be put into use next season.
