Rob MacLean (1973) Richard Maclean (1975) and Steve Jourdan (1967)
The photograph was taken on the banks of the Deuro River, Crestuma, (near Porto), Portugal. On the left is Richard MacLean - Rich graduated from Rhodes in 1978 - he is now a senior master at Old Swindon Hospital School, in Stourbridge - English Midlands. In the middle is Rob MacLean (graduated in 1977) and on the right is Steve Jourdan, who was at Rhodes in 1967. Rob and Steve were members (Assistant Manager and Manager respectively) of the South African Canoe Marathon Team that did duty in Portugal at the World Canoe Marathon Championships from 16th to 20th September 2009. Rob also competed in the Masters K1 and K2 events, where he came 5th in the K1 and won a gold medal in the K2, whilst Steve, competing in the Grandmasters events, came 9th in the K1 and 4th in the K2 events. Rich came over from the UK as a supporter for the final 3 days that the competition ran. The SA team came 5th overall (out of 41 Countries) based on the medals and postitions gained. A very good achievement!
