The 'Bob Neill' Coxless Quad

Yesterday evening we welcomed back Ron Neill (brother of Bob), Heriot’s Rowers past and present, and the Heriot's Rowing community to christen the new Coxless Quad, the ‘Bob Neill.’ The group had previously joined each other last October to pay tribute to the late Bob Neill, Master of Rowing and Physics Teacher.

From the 6 October 2023 event, an amazing £64’703 was raised which has allowed for the purchase of the new Coxless Quad, a set of eight new blades, and the creation of a rowing hardship fund to enable more young people from the School to become involved in Rowing, to grow, develop and further what is already an amazing Rowing reputation.

We thank Bob Neill for his dedicated service to Heriots’ Physics and Rowing and for building such strong foundations on which this community is built. We send a heartfelt thank you to all donors, rowers and volunteers who came together to achieve such a phenomenally successful tribute.

Who knows, maybe we can achieve the same success as we begin preparations for our Burns Supper on the 24 January 2025 to launch fundraising for the Heriot’s Pipes and Drums Band.
