The rowing programme at St Andrews is led by our Director of Rowing and a team of experienced coaches and support staff. Our Director of Rowing, Oscar, is a previous rower and record-setter for UStABC.
Born in Germany but educated at St Edward's in Oxford, Oscar has been rowing for almost a decade. In his first year at the university, Oscar proved himself a talented rower by gaining a spot in the top boat; only three years later seeing Henley Royal Regatta once more by reaching semi-finals.
Oscar coached the Novice Women's team in his third year of rowing. He had a massive impact on the team who later went on to make BUCS 'A' finals and set a club record at WeHORR. Amongst those that continued rowing, one rower went on to represent Canada just a year later in the U23 team 2019.
Oscar's vision is for the University of St Andrews Boat Club to be one of the top University rowing programmes in the UK as well as sending multiple athletes onto national U23 teams as well as the Scottish Rowing team. His experience as a rower, and already being a member of the UStABC family, certainly gives him a unique and relatable approach to our goals.
