Got a lovely photo from Malvern Prep school who have an 8 man Dreher sculling tank installed.

You can see coach Craig Hoffman in the background (he’s the one holding the paper).

The lads use the special Dreher tank sculls and you can clearly see the the bolt-together sections of the tank along the back wall, the walkway so coaches can get close to correct athletes technique and the mirrors so athletes can see themselves.

We interviewed Coach Hoffman for the newsletter at Henley Royal Regatta.

  1. We received this email from Craig Hoffman after he’d read this post
    “Hi Rebecca,
    Also in the picture you posted of MalvernPrep’s rowing tank, USA Olympic 8 Gold medalist Caroline Lind with 2009 Henley Temple Cup champion Justin Teti from Princeton’s National championship lightweight 8, Justin is a Malvern Prep assistant rowing coach I hope you are well, we missed you at the Head of the Charles.
    Best regards,
    Craig Hoffman”
