Regatta Recap

The club has been out and about throughout the summer regatta season, so far attending the Scottish Spring Regatta (22nd & 23rd April), Castle Semple Regatta (20th May) and the Scottish Championships (3rd & 4th June).
     The Scottish Spring Regatta provided a great opportunity for a number of our junior rowers to gain experience of multi-lane racing at the Strathclyde Park Course.  This was followed up with a more select squad heading down to the Castle Semple Regatta where Megan Bromham rowed in a scratch eight with members of SPRC, and in a quad in which she reached the final. Also entering the novice and J18 1x events, Megan came away with a brilliant win in the novice category!
     The Scottish Championships were next up and good contingent were looking forward to testing themselves on the Strathclyde Park Course.  Our junior members had entries across the age ranges and in some of the novice categories whilst our seniors had entries in both novice and masters events.

     For a number of the squad this was their first experience of multi lane racing and all put in strong performances, including several minor placings in the junior events.  The highlight of the weekend from an Inverness perspective was the gold medal in the masters pair, which was a first gold medal at the Scottish Championships for Dave Rothwell, our former President, 23 years since first competing there.
