At the Scottish Rowing Awards Dinner held in Dunblane on Saturday 15th January, three members of Inverness Rowing Club were included in the list of athletes nominated for awards.

Hazel Smith was nominated in the Veteran Oarswoman of the Year category for her significant achievements throughout 2010 including three gold medals at the World Masters regatta, whilst John Sharkey was nominated in the Veteran Oarsman category for his outstanding achievements throughout the year. Also nominated as part of the Crew of the Year category was Alan Sinclair as a member of the Scottish Mixed Eight which won a gold medal at the Commonwealth Rowing Championships in Canada.

Although Hazel narrowly missed out on an award to Ailie Ord of Strathclyde Park Rowing Club, John was delighted to receive the Veteran Oarsman of the Year award, with the Crew of the Year Award going to the Scottish Mixed Eight in which Alan raced in the number 6 seat in Canada. :D
