Current Club Captain: Kiara Parlevliet 2020/2021 

"Over the past year, I have been involved with helping the younger rowers in our club grow, whether this be by coaching them or just being a friendly face to make them feel comfortable. This has brought me joy and a very real purpose. Throughout my time as captain, I started spending more time down at the club until it felt as if I lived there! But I would not want it any other way because it felt weird when I was not down, and I just wanted to be back at the club helping."
