Captain of boats Nicole Scheumann revealing the name of the new W1 Salani

At the beginning of this year LCBC decided that the M1 Empacher had spent too many years without a name and began looking for something to call it. The original list of names contained a whole host of unsuitable ideas along the Imp theme, with memorable suggestions including Impregnate and Impala.

However, on acquiring the new W1 Salani at the end of Hilary we decided that it was time to get serious and a naming ceremony was planned for the day of Rowing On. Many members of the Lincoln College Boat Club Society attended, and watched as the boats were named after notable members of the Society, with Anthony Lock christening the Empacher Timothy Taylor and Nicole Scheumann naming the Salani Ian Halliday in time for Summer Eights 2011.
