Medals from both sides of the Atlantic

posted by Roy R Sinclair - 11 Sep 2006

Inverness Rowing Club members achieved success at two separate regattas last weekend.
Hazel Smith took part in the World Masters Regatta which was this year held at Princeton in the USA.
She was a member of crews which took part in four events, winning gold medals in Veteran C Quadruple Sculls and Veteran D Coxed fours. In Veteran C Double Sculls and Veteran D Eights, her crews just missed out on gold in producing the tightest of finishes to claim second place in both these events.

Nearer to home, Colin Sinclair was the club's representative at the Aberdeen Sprint where he won the Mens Novice Single Sculls and also took part in Mens R2 and Mens Junior 18 Single Sculls in which he produced one of the closest finishes of the day but just missed his second win by the a mere 2 feet against Lockhart of Aberdeen Schools Rowing Association.
Colin's elder brother Alan, representing Aberdeen Boat Club, also had a successful day in winning three events, Mens Open Single Sculls, Mens Open Coxless Pairs and Mens Invitation Coxless Pairs.
