Henley Royal Regatta

posted by Roy Sinclair - 30 Jun 2008

Two former members of Inverness Rowing Club will compete in separate events at Henley Royal Regatta this week.

Colin Williamson (from Perth) and Alan Sinclair (from Belmaduthy on the Black Isle) also developed their successful rowing careers as members of Aberdeen University Boat Club and Aberdeen Boat Club and now are both members of the Leander Club in Henley on Thames.

Following excellent performances by both athletes in earlier regattas and events over the past nine months, Colin will race in the No 6 seat of the Leander eight which meets the Christ Church (Oxford) and Martyrs crew in the first round of the Ladies' Challenge Plate on Wednesday. On Thursday, Alan will be in the stroke seat of the Leander(A) coxless four which will race a crew from London Rowing Club in their first round of the Visitors' Challenge Cup. Hopes are high for success in both events, with Colin gaining his first Henley medal as a member of the Leander eight which won the Thames Challenge Cup at last year's Henley Royal Regatta.
