The Club's Boats

The Prince of Wales

The Prince of Wales
'Whole crew about to ...'

Maker: Janousek
Made in: 2002
Bought in: 2002
Named by: His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales

This boat arrived to replace the damaged Charybdis in the summer of 2002. It was not used until 2003, however, due to its arriving with St. Catharine's Boat Club style chevrons!

The boat was named The Prince of Wales by His Royal Highness himself in a ceremony under the Wren Library in College on the 25th November 2003.
