Three Inverness oarspersons took part in the Aberdeen Asset Management
Aberdeen Universities Boat Races on Sunday 9th March. All three were involved
in the Alumni event with Black Isle rowers Ruth Hobson (now studying for her
PhD at Reading University) in the bow seat and Alan Sinclair (now rowing with
the Leander Club in Henley on Thames) in the No 7 seat of the Aberdeen
University Boat Club's crew. Hazel Smith was a member of the
Robert Gordon University Boat Club's crew which lost out by a
margin of just under two lengths in a fine competitive race with their
Aberdeen University opponents.
Next Saturday, Sinclair is in the stroke seat of the Leander S2 Eight which
challenges with an international field of 420 other crews in the Tideway
Eights Head of the River on the River Thames.
