GB Trials success

As a result the boys have been invited to the GB winter camp in Nantes where work will begin on preparing next years World Championship boats.

Inverness Head 11 Wins

A group of 19 rowers went to compete at the Inverness Head weekend where we won no fewer than eleven events. Top performance goes to the boys double who produced there best race so far to be overall fastest double, 31 seconds ahead of  Edinburgh University. Other top boats were the Junior 18 girls quad( Somerside, Wicklow, Rankin and Neilson ) who were the fastest womens quad on the day and the fastest womens coxed four( cox Djoudi) . There was a great win for our Womens novice four ( Bouteleb, Cannon, Barber, Mackinnon and Gilchrist ) who finished first out of 21 crews ) and the Boys Junior four ( Glen , Watson, Abernethy and Urquhart ). The boys quad won J18 quads and lost narrowly to Edinburgh University by two seconds. Alex Rankin, Josh Armstrong an India Somersid won there respective sculling events and Urqhart and Abernethy domibated J16 doubles. Boutaleb and Cannon won J18 pairs.

Many thanks to the support team of Mrs Massaro, Miss Ryan, Mr Haggerty and Mr Somerside and to all the parents who came up to cheer us on.
