posted by Roy R Sinclair - 10 Nov 2003

Inverness Rowing Club is holding the Aberdeen Asset Management Inverness Fours Head on Saturday the 15th November on the superb rowing waters of the Caledonian Canal in Inverness.

The event is being held on the canal between Dochgarroch and the Boathouse near Tomnahurich Swing Bridge - a distance is of over 4500 metres.

The event is very popular and has attracted a total of over 140 crews from Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and many of the Scottish Universities as well as the home club and crews challenging for selection to the national squad.

This year the race is being supported by Aberdeen Asset Management, sponsor of The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race over the last three years. Aberdeen Asset Management's Head of Sponsorship and Corporate Affairs, Douglas Connon said - "I'm delighted to support this growing sport at a local level which compliments our involvement at significantly higher levels".

Spectators are welcome to come and witness the tremendous spectacle of top Scottish crews racing. The Caledonian Canal is now regularly used by Scottish International crews for training and is acknowledged by such as Peter Haining, Scotland's World Champion sculler, as the best in Scotland for rowing.

There will be two Divisions (races) the first starting at 12:00noon and the second at 2:45pm. The Boathouse is located two hundred metres beyond the Jacobite Cruises Office on the Torvean golf course side of the canal.
