On Sunday 28th September, the club's own closed single
sculling event was raced for the Allan Garraway Single Sculling Trophy over
the sprint course close to the boathouse on the Caledonian Canal. A total of 8
athletes, four women and four men, ranging in age from 12 to 65 took part in
this event in favourable tailwind conditions with equalising handicaps being
applied in favour of the older and junior members who took part.
Those athletes who fought their way through to semi-final positions were in
the first semi - final , John Sharkey and Mary Clouston,
whilst Dave Rothwell and Susanne Standish-Hunter met in the second semi
Progressing by the narrowest of margins, Sharkey and Rothwell squeezed
through to the final, which was won by just over one length by Dave Rothwell.
