The much-awaited annual Ladies’ College versus Musaeus College regatta is set to take place on October 6 at the Colombo Rowing Club.

It is expected that the beautiful setting and calm waters of the Beira Lake will come alive with the sensation of excitement and much hope on this important day on the calendars of both schools. This event has continued to foster a special bond of comradeship between them in the spirit of good competition and a shared passion for the sport according to organisers.

With rowing being a demanding and competitive sport involving much skill, teamwork, strength and endurance, it will be clearly seen in the dedication and determination of both crews who are said to have been training with added commitment and fervour in the weeks leading up to the encounter. The crews have been trained under the guidance of coach Sharen Kannangara and assistant coach Saliya Gunasekara for Ladies’ College while Anuradha Nadaraja has moulded Musaeus College as their coach. This year, Ladies’ College is captained by Sanjula Boteju and Ashvini Subasinghe with Kavisha Dassanayake as vice captain. Musaeus is captained by Mayanthi Weerakoon with her vice-captain Binali de Alwis.
