Success for Sharkey at Clydesdale Regatta

posted by Roy Sinclair - 10 May 2010, 4:15 p.m.

In fine dry sunny conditions at the Clydesdale ARC Regatta on the River Clyde last Saturday, Inverness member John Sharkey was in excellent form and produced two outstanding performances in winning both his semi-final and final in the men's veteran single sculls event. Against Peter Craig of Glasgow Rowing Club, he overcame a four second handicap to overhaul his opponent to win by two lengths and later won his final by a similar margin in an exciting race with Ron Wallace from Aberdeen Boat Club.

Next weekend, 15th and 16th May, Inverness crews will be competing in the ever popular annual two day North East Regatta being held on the tidal waters of the River Dee in Aberdeen.:yes:
