WOMEN rowers at Sheffield University have a new boat, which was named Salacia at a special ceremony.

The boat was purchased second-hand from Manchester University Rowing Club with £2,000 of donations from Sheffield graduates, and has been repaired and refurbished.

n The name Salacia originates from Roman mythology, representing the name of the female divinity of the sea. The new boat replaces one which was in a bad state of repair.
