He has been selected to stroke the New Zealand Junior Quad Scull. There are 25 teams entered from all over the world, making it a hotly contested event.

The New Zealand Junior Quad Scull crew believe they have made great strides since coming together post Maadi Cup and can’t wait to start racing. The team are currently in Rotterdam finalising preparations and training for the regatta.
