Leadership

Ever Green Boat Club organizes itself as a boat captain-based network, featuring a variety of individuals coordinating participation in local regattas. The club's officers perform basic administrative duties in support of the boat captains, while also pursuing the club's broader strategic goals. Please contact us if you'd like to become a boat captain or an officer in the club.

PRESIDENT & HEAD COACH

Scott Armstrong

Scott's debut as Dartmouth's heavyweight varsity coach in 1992 shocked the rowing world with an undefeated dual race season (9-0), an Eastern Sprints championship and an IRA co-championship. While at Dartmouth, Scott's crews consistently ranked in the top 10 nationally. He has also coached at the national team level, leading the US Mens 8+ to a world championship at the 1993 World University Games. As a collegiate oarsman at Brown, Scott placed first in the 1984 Eastern Sprints and Henley Royal Regatta, and the 1986 IRA. Scott's duties include recruiting athletes, developing high-value training programs for a variety of age groups (men and women), and assisting Boat Captains expand the Ever Green network.


BOAT CAPTAINS

Kate Davison '07

A gold medalist at the 2006 Under-23 World Championships, Kate lives in the Upper Valley where she teaches Kindergarten. At Dartmouth, Kate placed eighth at the collegiate National Championships. She later returned to coach women's varsity and novice rowers for two years as the second assistant. Kate organized the women's alumni 8+ in the 2011 Head to the Charles, and looks forward to the 2012 regatta. 

Fred Malloy '94

Fred may be the luckiest rower in Dartmouth history: after barely making the Varsity Heavy boat all three years, he medaled at Sprints (twice), IRAs, and Collegiate Nationals, rowing primarly 2-seat and bow. Like many Ever Green rowers, Fred walked on to the crew at Dartmouth, rowed for four years, then promptly stopped rowing. After a 15 year 'retirement' Fred picked up an oar again in 2009 to prepare for a 2010 reunion of his Sprints/IRA winning crew. For Ever Green, he specializes in recruiting and motivating others to get fit due to a belief that his boat-setting skills only work in fast boats.

Dan Perkins '97

Dan, a heavyweight captain at Dartmouth, has succeeded at every level, competing for the U.S. Junior National, Under-23 and National teams—as well as the Oxford University Boat Club. His Dartmouth journey began at Kent School where he rowed for the legendary Hart Perry '55. A resident of Oakland, Dan is a Board Member at Berkeley Paddling and Rowing Club and is a regional member at Marin Rowing Association. He is also a member of the 1929 BC and Bosporos RC. Dan looks forward to racing with fellow Ever Greeners of any age, in sculling, sweep and mixed boats.

Austin Whitman '99

Austin rowed on the Dartmouth lightweight squad from 1995-1999, stroking the undefeated freshman lights in 1996 and winning a bronze medal at Nationals in 1999. He has rowed and medaled twice at Canadian Henley and rowed twice at Henley Royal Regatta. These days he lives near Boston and competes in triathlons, from sprint to Ironman distance, although still wears his Dartmouth JL religiously and fits into his old cotton unisuit. Thankfully EGBC has added some fresh Dartmouth green garb to the wardrobe. Highlights of his alumni rowing career at HOCR include the Superman/ZOG crew of 2001, a bronze medal in the Alumni 8+ in 2009, and a 10th place Alumni 8+ finish for EGBC in 2011. His affirmative action  goal with EGBC is to get more fellow ex-lightweights back into boats.


OFFICERS

Alex Simpson '89

Alex was a four year heavyweight rower for Dartmouth, graduating in 1989 and rowing at Henley Royal Regatta his senior year. Alex left rowing following graduation, but re-engaged with Ever Green in 2010. He rowed in the club's Mens Masters entry, stroked by Syd Williams, at the Head of the Charles in 2011. Alex is in charge of race logistics (registration, equipment, etc.) for Ever Green Boat Club.

Sydney Williams '89

Syd dedicated his tenure as captain of the 1988-89 heavyweight squad to reinforcing Dartmouth's proud tradition, and led his team to the Henley Royal Regatta and the Koninklijke Holland Becker Regatta in Amsterdam. After college, he raced for the New York Athletic Club, finishing top three at various championship regattas. His journey into rowing began at Deerfield Academy, where he rallied fellow students to found the school's rowing program. As a Masters rower and following a 20-year layoff, Syd now competes for Greenwich Crew, in Greenwich, Connecticut. Recent wins include the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta and the Head of the Schuylkill. Syd administers the EGBC website and helps to guide the Club's strategic focus.
