Inverness Rowing Club is holding the TENON LTD INVERNESS EIGHTS AND SMALL BOATS HEAD 2005 on SATURDAY 19th February on the superb rowing waters of the Caledonian Canal.
The event is being held on a 4500 metre course between Dochgarroch and the club's boathouse near Tomnahurich Swing Bridge.
The event is very popular and this year has attracted crews from Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Scottish Universities as well as from the home club and crews challenging for selection to the National Squad.
This year the race is being supported by Tenon Ltd who have accountancy offices in Inverness and throughout the UK.
Spectators are welcome to come and witness the tremendous spectacle of top
Scottish crews racing on a length of water which is regularly used by Scottish
crews for training and is acknowledged by such as Peter Haining, Scotland's
World Champion sculler, as the best in Scotland for rowing.
Racing will be in two divisions - the first scheduled to start at 11.30am and
the second at 2.30pm.
The Boathouse is located two hundred metres beyond the Jacobite Cruises Office on the Torvean golf course side of the canal.
