Moore Stephens have donated a RIB and a quads rowing boat to The Moore Stephens Jersey Rowing Club Youth Academy.

On a recent visit to the Island, Richard Moore, Chairman of the Moore Stephens International Policy Committee, presented the 22 strong Youth Rowing Academy with the RIB, which will be used as a guard boat for the Academy members in both training sessions and sea races, including the well-known Sark to Jersey race. The quads boat was presented to the Academy at an earlier date and was named ‘Lucy’ after Mr Moore’s wife. 

Mr Moore said: “It is important to encourage sport on the island and these young rowers are talented and train very hard. It’s great to see their enthusiasm and commitment to the sport and I’m glad that we’ve had the opportunity to contribute to their success and development, both in terms of their rowing and the very important aspect of their safety on the sea.”

Ian Blandin, chairman of the Youth Academy, added: “We are immensely grateful to Moore Stephens for donating the RIB and rowing boat to the Academy. Having more boats available is vital to the growth of the Academy and safety is paramount, whether the members are practicing in St Helier harbour or taking part in a race.”

The Moore Stephens Jersey Rowing Club Youth Academy members, aged between 14 and 18, train twice a week during the main rowing season, which runs from April to October, and once a week through the winter.  There are approximately 18 races each year which the Youth Academy are eligible to enter. The annual 15 mile Sark to Jersey race takes place in June and the Youth Academy will be training in preparation for this race.
