THE LAST GRAND 1985 - The Garth Lemkus Story

The Last Grand
As rowers, much like our fellow paddling and sailing communities, we are surrounded by individuals of exceptional talent who share their knowledge, skills and experiences.

And so, the CCRC family gathered last weekend to hear Springbok heavyweight rower, Garth Lemkus tell his green and gold story as it was, during apartheid. CCRC and fellow members of Wemmer Pan Rowing Club at the time, shared in the build-up of events towards Garth’s team selection at Jeppe’s Boys High, and subsequent invitation to join a four in the WITS University Rowing Team.

Banned from the Olympics, the crew forged ahead and qualified to join the Trident Tour Team to Britain and Germany, amid fierce competition. The four, by now famous for their exceptional rhythm and stroke rate - with Mark Shuttleworth, Garth Lemkus, Rod MacKinnon, and Kurt Landsburg – went on to make history on the Thames where they won gold in the ‘last Grand’ of 1985.

Thank you Garth for bringing home the realities and lifelong lessons of commitment and passion. All towards a greater appreciation of ‘Boys in the Boat’.

Watch this space for your invitation to our next talk by CCRC Coach Master, international competitor and touring rower, Derrick Read.
