Last weekend, Inverness oarswoman Hazel Smith was a member of Double Sculling
and Quadruple Sculling crews along with Ailie Ord (Strathclyde Park RC) at the
Henley Masters Regatta. After some exciting wins in the preliminary rounds,
they reached the finals of both the Veteran C Double Sculls and Veteran C
Quadruple Sculls only to narrowly lose out on winning Gold medals by margins
of 2 feet and 4 feet respectively after some extremely close racing.
This coming weekend, the UK National Rowing Championships take place at the
Holme Pierrepoint rowing lake at Nottingham. Belmaduthy scullers Colin
Sinclair and his elder brother Alan (who will be representing Aberdeen
University Boat Club) will take part in their respective Junior and Under 23
Single Sculls events against a large entry of crews from throughout the UK.
