The Lincoln College Boat Club purchased a brand new 8+ boat for the M1 crew, which was used in this year’s Summer VIII’s. The boat came from Salani, a boatmaker in Italy from whom the College purchased a new boat for W1 in 2010. The purchase of a new boat happens roughly every 7 years and is funded by a pooled contribution from the College and the Lincoln College Boat Club Society (LCBCS). The beautiful new boat has been named in honour and in memory of former Lincoln member John Hollingsworth (1949), an M1 rower and former Secretary of the LCBCS. The boat was unveiled on the Saturday of Summer VIII’s, with John’s widow, son and granddaughter present.
