posted by Roy R Sinclair - 17 Aug 2003

Inverness Rowing Club is holding the HAWCO SPRINT REGATTA on Saturday the 23rd August. This year's event is being sponsored by Hawco Inverness.

The event is being held on the Caledonian Canal over a 500 metre course close to the Boathouse.

The event is very popular and attracts crews from Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and many of the Scottish Universities as well as the home club. Over forty races are on the race programme which starts at 11.15am and is expected to finish at around 4.30pm.

Spectators are welcome to come and witness the tremendous spectacle of top Scottish crews racing on a length of water which is acknowledged by such as Peter Haining, Scotland's World Champion sculler, as the best in Scotland for rowing.

The Boathouse is located two hundred metres beyond the Jacobite Cruises Office on the Torvean golf course side of the canal.
