posted by Roy R Sinclair - 26 Jun 2006

Inverness Rowing Club members are competing on the waters of the River Thames at Henley over the next two week period.
In the Britannia Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta, Alan Sinclair is a member of the Aberdeen Boat Club's coxed four along with his fellow crew mates Colin Williamson, Ross Cruikshank, Dave McNeill (stroke) and Meadbh Boyle (cox), which tackles a crew from City of Oxford Rowing Club in their first round race and are confident of progressing to the quarter finals on Friday. Semi-finals and final are on Saturday and Sunday respectively and the small band of Inverness supporters will be on hand to give enthusiastic support to the Aberdeen crew in their determined attempt to become only the second Scottish crew to achieve success at Henley Royal Regatta.
The following weekend sees another Inverness oarsperson competing at Henley when Hazel Smith is a member of Double Sculling crews at the Henley Masters Regatta.
Last year the Inverness squad achieved success in the Veteran Quadruple Sculls and this year's squad are keen to emulate that success and bring another crop of medals back home to Inverness.
