Merchant & Banker’s Regatta on course for finals on 29nth September
The tranquil course of the Adyar that you see from the Kotturpuram Bridge to the Madras Boat Club is the scene of hectic preparations for the coming Regatta every morning. Teams from LionBridge, Element K, JWT, Sify and other companies are putting in hours on the water to hone their skills and build their stamina. For it’s a 800 metre course that can draw every ounce of energy and stamina out of the contestants as they strive to cross the finish line first. The heats begin early next week, culminating in the finals on Saturday afternoon with the prize ceremony in the late evening. Plan to be there. It’s a sport that involves grit, guts and glory, and quite exciting to watch.
