Olga Tender Refurbishment

Posted: 2nd September 2021

Shortly after Mount Kelly’s adoption of Olga as the School Boat, we took on the refurbishment of her tender.

This small, elderly, clinker-built rowing boat had been sadly neglected for many years and came to us in a sorry state in October 2019, but after many months of hard work – interrupted, of course, by COVID – we were delighted to hand her back, decked out in the school colours, to Ben Williams of the Tectona Trust.

The project was headed up by Gary Collard, the Head of Design Technology at the College, and by Andy Westlake (pictured), the Design Technician. She will return to her rightful place on Olga’s port-side deck, and will be much-used for runs ashore.
