GREY High School's Robert Stevens won the u-15 single sculls final at the Buffalo Regatta which produced some competitive racing in East London at the weekend.
Oscar Hobson was edged for honours in the u-16 single sculls final, while the Grey first four did well to finish third, behind a strong St Benedict's and Kind Edward School (KES) teams.
The first eight won the B final against Selborne and Parktown.
St Andrew's rowed their hearts out in the first eight to finish second to St Benedict's, with KES in third place and SACS fourth.
The competition began on Thursday when the top schools teams from all over the country took part in 2000m and 1000m heats in their respective boat classes.
The wind caused havoc, meaning that some teams were disqualified. Several appeals were lodged at regatta control.
On Friday, St Andrew's rowers Michael Bennett and Matt Kroon won the under-19 pairs, while the school's first eight took the premier sprint race.
Grey's Keagan Ardendorff won the u-19 sculls final in an impressive exhibition.
Rowing enthusiasts also had the joy of watching the top varsity crews competing for first spot, while also seeing Olympic hero James Thompson out on the water competing with his Tukkies team-mates.
The teams also enjoyed seeing their coaches on the water, winning their share of the medals.
They included Grey head coach Benjamin Ekron and his doubles partner, Jason Taylor, who won the senior men's A double final.
