The primary object of the Schools Boat Race is to give full effect to the “Challenge” as set out above. An important – but secondary – object is to stimulate greater interest in rowing in the various provinces and in South Africa generally, through advertising the Boat Race in the local media and securing radio, press, TV coverage etc. (And we might find that many other schools start showing an interest in rowing – and in eights!)
