Inverness Rowing Club is holding the Hawco Sprint Regatta on Saturday the 20th August. This year's event is again 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 this year has attracted crews from Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Scottish Universities as well as from the home club. A full race programme, which includes junior, senior and veteran events, is expected to start at 10.30am and be completed shortly after 4.00pm.
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.
