Coach of Imperial College Boat Club.

He will start in September 2010 to lead the CUBC squad in

and coached, and has been developing a growing reputation as a coach at both

“Importantly, Steve has a deep knowledge of the unique
nature of the Boat Race’s challenging Championship Course between Putney and
Mortlake as both an athlete and coach.”

Steve commented: “I am hugely honoured to have been
appointed by CUBC and am excited at the prospect of leading the Club in its
preparations for the 2011 Race.”

Derek Rasmussen, CUBC President, commented, “Steve
Trapmore’s track record both as an athlete at the highest level and as coach
speaks for itself. We are all looking forward to working with him in building
on this year’s fabulous win. He will have the full confidence of the squad as
we get ready to take on Oxford in the 2011 Xchanging Boat Race.”
