Row, Row Row Your Boat

The finals of the Merchants, Bankers and Clubs Regatta 2019 happened at the age-old Madras Boat Club. The Regatta, a series of boating races has a history akin to that of the club itself and was initiated in 1900 by a group of merchants and bankers to promote the sport of rowing.

With clubs across the city joining in, the third edition featured 10 teams including RR Donnelley, India Cements Capital Ltd and Royal Madras Yacht Club taking part in 18 events across six days. As the men’s crew from Nexus Innovative Solutions surges to first place, the women’s team from the Madras Gymkhana Club clinches the gold, ringing in the Overall Championship for the third year in a row.
